Meet Ruth, Brand Ambassador at our Midtown Plaza location in Saskatoon, SK
How many years have you been with Paris?
I have been at Paris 2 years this round, but I was at this store for approximately 2 years in the past.
What are you grateful for?
Life, my husband, my kids and God.
What is your favourite customer story?
I greeted a fellow and struck up a conversation with him as we proceeded to engagement rings where he began to tell me his story. First off, he showed me a pendant and chain he had for his sweetheart. He was carrying it around in a leather pouch all tangled up. I offered him a little plastic ziplock bag and showed him how to keep it from tangling and he was so grateful. As we looked further, he picked a few very exquisite expensive pieces. Then he stopped and said “You know you are the nicest salesperson I ever met.”
I replied “Thank you. “ He proceeded to tell me that in most stores he walks into like ours, he gets ignored or brushed off.
He continued “I know, I by all appearances do not look like a kind of guy that has money or wants to really buy, but I have lots of money and that is not an issue.” He also told me that I was willing to listen to his story and talk to him. He liked that! He told me that when he finds the perfect ring, the price is not a factor. His mom told him to spend whatever it takes and not to go cheap. He looked to be about 40 and he said his sweetheart was way younger and deserved the best. He was taking her to Paris, France to pop the question. He did not buy that day, but it proves that we should never judge a book by its cover.
What was the last random act of kindness that you did?
I lent my old phone to my kid’s friend who really needed one.
What is your favourite piece of jewellery?
I love all trillion gemstones and diamonds. If you look at the center they draw you in like a vortex. I don’t have any pieces yet, but I will eventually!
What do you like to do for fun?
Colour, artwork, walks, car rides, bike rides, adventures, exploring, creating flower and herb pots in summer, sitting by a blazing fire under the stars, playing Candy Soda Crush and keeping up with old and new friends far and wide on Facebook.
If you were an animal, what kind of animal would you be?
A cat for sure, independent, the boss, pampered, and can purr or hiss to whom I wish…lol!
What are 5 things that make you happy?
- Colouring artwork
- My dogs
- Evening fires
- Driving alone with my favourite music blasting
What did you want to be when you grew up?
A graphic designer.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
Make my house would be spotless and have supper on the table by blinking my eyes.
