Always listen to your customer.

Allison Leitzel Williams, COO, Leitzel’s Jewelry, Myerstown, PA


Your customer is always telling you valuable information, but it is up to you to hear it. Sometimes, a customer tells us exactly what they are thinking and it makes our lives easy. Other times, we have to interpret what they are saying, such as when we handle their objections. Finally, we have to listen to unspoken words by analyzing customer patterns and sales data to determine what our customers are telling us. When we listen, we can overcome objections during the sales process and increase our closing ratio. We can predict fashion trends and make good buying decisions. We can adapt to customers’ wants, needs and budgets and target our marketing and inventory. Ultimately, we can make the best decisions for the success of our business and the happiness of our customers.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
