What I’ve Learned: Michelle Shetler & Kelly Wade Fry



You must manage customer expectations.

Michelle Shetler & Kelly Wade Fry,
Shetler Wade Jewelers, San Antonio, TX

Managing customer expectations is one of the most important lessons we have learned to make, and keep, our customers happy. And happy clients are clients forever! One of the keys is really listening to what the customer wants. The other is to under-promise and over-deliver. We do not make promises that we cannot keep. By knowing our limits and being honest about them, we can deliver quality results without any setbacks to the customer. This is especially important when setting deadlines with our customers. It is always best to give a bit of wiggle room to avoid any customer disappointment.

Why This Fourth-Generation Jeweler Chose Wilkerson for a Very Special Sale

Parian & Sons of Franklin Lakes, NJ was founded in the early part of the 20th century. But even stores that have successfully made it through the Great Depression, a World War and the Woodstock Generation must come to an end. With no family wanting to continue the tradition, the time was right for Glenn Parian and his wife, Maria, to retire. And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
