The ring didn’t stand up to an acid test.

A woman who bought a 10 karat gold wedding band from a Zales store got an unpleasant surprise when she found out the ring wasn’t gold after all, WSPA-TV reports. According to the news station, the woman got a hunch the ring wasn’t gold after she noticed some flaking and discoloration, so she asked a local pawn shop to evaluate it. After the pawn shop performed an acid test, “there was no gold left, the acid ate it completely off the stone,” the manager of the pawn shop says. When the woman asked for her money back, Zales obliged and issued the following statement to the news outlet:

“Integrity is a core value of our company, and the trust of our guests is of the utmost importance to us. As such, we have diligent processes in place to ensure appropriate tracking and security of all guest merchandise brought in for repair or service. In any instance where a guest presents a concern, we work with them directly to ensure a satisfactory resolution reflective of our commitment to each and every guest.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
