(PRESS RELEASE) ALROSA has launched a digital tender for special size rough diamonds (over 10.8 carats). It allows customers to purchase stones despite current traveling restrictions imposed between countries due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The auction takes place between March 23 and April 6.

Due to the global situation, the company decided to cancel the upcoming special size auctions, simultaneously offering customers an opportunity to take part in a digital tender.

Digital tender is based on the technology that provides customers with a full digital scan of each rough diamond for detailed analysis. This allows buyers to thoroughly evaluate the rough and make informed purchasing decisions based on comprehensive data without visiting the company’s office.

“Health of our employees and customers is of prime importance to us. Therefore, we have decided to cancel the upcoming auctions and shorten those already in progress. ALROSA is in constant contact with customers from various countries and considers different supporting measures. One of the opportunities is a digital tender. It will not replace the traditional trading model, but becomes a solution for those who are ready to work remotely right now. We will provide all the necessary information about our rough diamonds and will negotiate with customers on payment terms and logistics,” said Evgeny Agureev, deputy CEO of ALROSA.

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.”
