We're in the Love Business
February 1, 2016
What a joy it is to be in the love business. Of course there are the engagement rings and wedding bands, but we know our customers have relationships beyond those milestones. So we would like to thank you for allowing us the pleasure of assisting in the selection of gifts for your loved ones, items for your personal enjoyment and maintaining your beloved family pieces. All of these are provided in love.
You buy gifts for family, friends, and significant others to show them that you care for and appreciate them. You take the time to go to a store and select an item that will best fit the occasion while considering how the gift will make the recipient feel, and in the anticipation of giving them the gift, you hope it will being them joy. That is love and Ketterman's gets to learn about your loved one and what he or she likes, how you feel about them and how much you care. What a delight to see how much you want to make this person happy.
"No one is going to take better
care of you than you." says Ellen Willson, Ketterman's very first employee. It is good to take care of yourself, to love yourself, to do things that make you happy. For personal purchases, Ketterman's gets to learn first hand what you want and need and can help to find the perfect personal gift. In this way Ketterman's gets the pleasure of knowing you better and making you, personally, happy. What a treat to actually see the gift presented right there in our store. What a happy place to be.
One of the best parts of working at Ketterman's is assisting customers with family pieces that have been cherished for generations, and making sure they will last for years to come. Whether redesigning or combining these heirlooms into more modern styles, or refurbishing them to their original state there are valuable stories to these pieces, lots of love shared, and we get to be a part of it.
A good friend of the Ketterman family, a salesman they have known for years described what we do as "selling joy". It is a very rewarding occupation, to make people happy. The Ketterman's and their associates have the satisfaction of providing our guests with accessories they will love and cherish, and we are thankful for this opportunity. In this season of the heart, we hope to continue our tradition of scattering joy and sharing love, and hope you will too.
