With 31,000 customers we need to constantly follow up with them, our work shop, and each other to ensure the best customer service possible. Accepting that you can’t do everything yourself is the first step. I have found the 5 Ps — proper planning prevents poor performance — help create a successful strategy. I have learned this the hard way, sometimes over and over again. You have to make the plan a priority in your life.

Thinking of Liquidating? Wilkerson’s Got You Covered

Bil Holehan, the manager of Julianna’s Fine Jewelry in Corte Madera, Calif., decided to go on to the next chapter of his life when the store’s owner and namesake told him she was set to retire. Before they left, Holehan says they decided to liquidate some of the store’s aging inventory. They chose Wilkerson for the sale. Why? “Friends had done their sales with Wilkerson and they were very satisfied,” says Holehan. He’d enthusiastically recommend Wilkerson to anyone looking to stage a liquidation or going-out-of-business sale. “There were no surprises,” he says. “They were very professional in their assessment of our store, what we could expect from the sale and they were very detailed in their projections. They were pretty much on the money.”
