INSTORE August calendar

5 Neil Armstrong would have turned 90 this month (Aug. 5) and Louis Armstrong 120 (Aug. 4). One took a small step for mankind, the other wondered what a wonderful world this could be. In a year when there has been so much to get down about, mark their birthdays with a plan to produce your own line of inspirational pendants or charms with whatever theme seems fitting — love, unity, perseverance. (And if you need a reminder about the power of jewelry, keep in mind that Neil is believed to have left such a bracelet on the moon in memory of his young daughter, who died at the age of 2.)

1 Mark GIRLFRIENDS DAY by holding a “Bring A Friend Event” in the store. There’s nothing like a shopping buddy oohing and ahhing over a piece to get the acquisitional urges flowing.

21 On MEN’S GROOMING DAY, team up with a local men’s spa or upscale hairdresser. Print gift cards for them to hand out offering $50 or $100 in free store credit to be used with any of your men’s jewelry.

26 On NATIONAL DOG DAY, invite customers to bring in their “best friends,” hold a dog fashion show, and raise money for the local no-kill shelter.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
