Gene the Jeweler Calls This His ‘Best Trade Ever’ … But That’s Wishful Thinking

After yet another inventive deal, our favorite jeweler is ready to “kick out the jams”.




In this episode of the satirical Gene the Jeweler series, Gene talks about the the deal he struck with another local business.

They’re supposed to promote each other, and Gene considers this to be his “best trade ever.”

Working with other local businesses can, of course, be great. But in this case there’s a problem: severe lack of synergy.



Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
