Why Don’t You Quit … and More Reader Letters for November

Do Us All a Favor and Quit

There is a store across town where the owner insults people and runs them off on a daily basis. There is not one week that goes by that we don’t have someone tell us a bad story about him. Why are you still in the business if you don’t care about helping people and making them happy? Do us all a favor and close your store. Jewelers like this give the rest of us an undeserved stigma. — Marc Majors, Sam L. Majors, Midland, TX


GOOD FOR THE GOOSE

Manufacturers must be doing better than retailers to be able to dictate how much you have to spend to remain a customer. Love to see a retailer do this with one of their customers. — Scott Kelly, Jems Jewels & Gold, North Wales, PA

YOU’RE NO DAISY

Why are millennials constantly trying to reinvent the wheel? This seems to be the issue with them and jewelry; everything they want has to be “different” yet exactly the same as everyone else has! OMG, so dull, yet they think they’re so unique … LOL. — Idar Bergseth, Idar, Victoria, British Columbia

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
