(Press Release)
NEW YORK, N.Y. – The 24 Karat Club of the City Of New York will hold its 115th annual Grand Banquet on Jan. 14, 2017, at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.

While invitations to the banquet are highly sought every year, the 2017 event will be memorable as it is the last one that will be held in the historic Waldorf Astoria grand ballroom before the hotel closes for a three-year renovation project.

The 24 Karat Club Banquet has been held at the Waldorf Astoria since 1913, when the hotel was located at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 34th Street, today the site of the Empire State Building. The 24 Karat Club Banquet is the second-oldest event still running at the hotel. Only the Pennsylvania Society banquet, which dates back to 1899, has an older tenure in the grand ballroom.

More details, including a special entertainment announcement, are coming soon.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
