Sales advice from Aleah Arundale.

When a client asks for something you don’t have, there’s a conundrum, says Aleah Arundale of the popular Jewelers Helping Jewelers Facebook group.

You can spend a lot of time and resources trying to get it — and sometimes you still don’t make the sale.

You can try to sell the person something you do have, but then you risk looking like you don’t care about the customer’s needs.

What to do?

In the video below, Arundale offers some ideas.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
