Give an Experience. The most important lesson we have learned from being in the retail business is how important it is to give the customer an experience, rather than only fulfilling a need. It’s all about treating customers and employees how you want to be treated. That little extra step of free gift wrapping, offering bottled water or personally taking a customer back to the service center will go a long way. Giving the customer this experience creates loyalty and repeat customers. These are the people who will talk about you to all of their friends and family, and offer a form of advertising that is priceless! — dean brinker, Brinker’s Jewelers, Evansville, IN

Wilkerson Testimonials

Is It Your Time to Enjoy Life? Wilkerson Can Get You There.

Mary and Tim Whalen, owners of Crown Jewelers in Pittsfield, Mass., wanted to enjoy life beyond their business. When they decided to retire and close shop, they asked Wilkerson to handle the sale. As long-time Wilkerson customers, Mary says she knew the company could manage all the details of the liquidation. It was also great to have “fresh eyes” on their business, says Mary, which “worked tremendously for us.” Today, the Whalens are beginning a new adventure but are quick to commend Wilkerson for helping them get there. “You have one chance to get it right,” she says about their retirement sale. “Do it right.”
