What you’d have said to customers who bothered you … if only you’d thought it fast enough.

[h3]“Please leave and take your business to the Internet.” [/h3]

To a customer who loudly announced to several customers in the store that no one should ever buy at retail and anybody can get “it” online.  “Several customers asked me how I was able to be so calm in the face of such a rude person. I replied that it was either that or I was going to shoot her.” — Anonymous

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
