Warren Buffett will man the jewelry counter at Borsheims for the second year in a row during the annual Berkshire Hathaway shareholder’s meeting, according to the blog for the Omaha, Neb.-based store.
“On Sunday (May 6) around 2 p.m., I will be clerking at Borsheims, desperate to beat my sales figure from last year,” the famed billionaire wrote in his annual letter to shareholders. “So come take advantage of me. Ask me for my ‘Crazy Warren’ price.”
The blog for the store, which is owned by Berkshire Hathaway, added: “We are thrilled to have Mr. Buffett back among our sales staff. He set records last year in his brief stint behind the counter and we expect a longer stay from Mr. Buffett this year. So mark it on your calendar and plan to do some buying. I’m sure you’ll get a deal from ‘Crazy Warren.’”
Last year, Borsheims president and CEO Susan Jacques hailed Buffett’s selling skills.
“He did an amazing job,” she told JCK. “There was a huge line of people. He is such an iconic figure to the shareholders. Where else can they actually say: Warren Buffett sold this to me? … One gentlemen even handed me a credit card, and said, ‘I just want to buy something from him.”
