My wife has been to a few jewelry stores looking for a new "screw on earring back thingy" that keeps the diamond stud deals securely in place. (Earrings were purchased at Costco’s little jewelry section). Each store simply said, "No sorry, you need to go back to the place where you got them and get a new thingy". I’ve always found this odd since they sell similar stuff but I digress.
Fruitless for months, we decided to visit Jared at Jordan Creek. We were immediately greeted by Stephanie who asked us how she could be of service. Once we told her that we wanted this little problem solved (and effectively that we weren’t going to be buying a $5k ring that day), she solicited assistance from Arnold, another associate immediately. Stephanie then offered us coffee, cappuccino, water, etc. Shortly thereafter, Arnold returned with new back thingy installed and sent us on our way…free of charge. Here are my first impressions, often the only ones that will matter.
- Jared cares and is in it for the long haul with their customers (and potential ones).
- Jared doesn’t have people that shuttle you off to the "they’re not buying anything so give them less service land" so prevalent (it seems) today.
- Jared has a kid play area so they don’t mind you bringing your little ones around.
- Jared’s brand promises are absolutely kept and executed upon when you visit the store.
Great job Jared. In closing, let me tell you that my barometer of service excellence is my wife. As we left the store, she said, "Well I guess we know where we’ll be buying all of our jewelry from now on." That’s the kind of instant loyalty that you want…and you’ve got it from us.
