“Every One of Them Said, ‘Go with Wilkerson.’”

There are times when decisions must be made. For Joe Cheslock, owner of Sycamore Jewelers in Midlothian, VA for the past 25 years, the time had come. He had to decide whether to renew a five-year lease. Instead, he called Wilkerson to handle his store’s going-out-of-business sale. Why did he select Wilkerson? “I talked to retailers from around the country to get their advice. Every one of them said, ‘Go with Wilkerson.’” And he’s glad he did. Cheslock says he was amazed by Wilkerson’s organization and attention to detail. Of course, as a store owner, it was hard to let others do the heavy lifting, but he’s glad he did. “Wilkerson did everything they said they would and more. They follow through and they’re respected in the industry. I now see why.”
