Warren Buffett, Retired Jewelry Salesman

April 14, 2015

We knew it couldn’t last forever. Our best (and certainly our most well-known) jewelry salesman retired after an incredible few stints behind the jewelry counter.

Warren Selling

Warren Buffett sells jewelry to a Berkshire Hathaway shareholder during the 2012 Shareholders Meeting

Calling himself “Crazy Warren,” Mr. Buffett sold jewelry to shareholders during a two-hour shift inside Borsheims luxury salon on the Sunday of Berkshire Hathaway weekend. He made some big sales and lived up to his “Crazy Warren” moniker by giving prices so low it made our President & CEO cringe.

But what truly made Warren Buffett a great salesman was that he was able to participate in the special moments in our customers’ lives… including this surprising moment last year.

While we will miss Mr. Buffett behind the jewelry counter, we’re thrilled to still welcome him to Borsheims during the shareholders weekend. Each year, he comes by and is a part of the entertainment, playing ping pong or bridge and shaking a few shareholders’ hands along the way. Come by on Sunday, May 3, and see our best retired salesperson for yourself!
