You Won’t Believe What This Associate Said to An Off-Duty Cop Shopping in His Store

A law-enforcement officer would come in often in uniform, but one Saturday, he and his wife came in wearing jeans and t-shirts. Going to write up the repair envelope, my clerk said, “I know I know you, but I can’t place you.” He kindly replied, “Bill, the motorcycle officer.” To all of our amusement, my clerk replied without even thinking: “Oh, I didn’t recognize you with your clothes on!” – Frank Cafaro, Frank Cafaro Downtown Jewelers, Miami,FL

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.”
