“RETIRING SEEKING BUYER REALLY WORKS”. When we first spoke back in October I must tell you I had concems. After interviewing other firms that did what you do I felt the only way to go was to do this my self. I have to admit you made a believer out of me. When everyone else said “run a Going Out Of Business Sale”, you said, “how does that reach your goals!”
You researched our local codes and created a plan that allowed me to go after my goals without having to close my store. Our final result was impressive; the sale hit my annual volume in 90-days, which was a significant number. Than your team remained in place, with your inventory, as I negotiated with four potential buyers. I sold the store and remaining inventory for an additional 60% of my annual volume to a qualified buyer who paid cash. Some of our friends have spent years looking for buyers for their stores, and never find one. Your team did all this and more in less than five months.
I can’t say enough about your fīrm’s advertising skills, the message was right on, and when I had concerns, you listened, and adjusted. I worried your firm would push their fill1-in inventory over mine, just the opposite happened. As for your sales supervisors, everyone was top notch. Amie could sell, Tom was a total gentleman, and then came Steve. I can’t say enough about Steve. He was Armie and Tom rolled into one plus more. It was as if you sent me family. This man would be a success no matter what store you put him in!
Chuck, your team did what it said, and said what it did. Everyone was a true professional. Let’s remain in touch. I highly recommend your group to any jeweler considering a sale.
