Amazon (Seattle) sales have reached $332 billion year to date, according to Forbes. Though company profits fell in the third quarter, sales are still up by 15 percent this year. Amazon says they are implementing strategies for “deeper customer loyalty.”

Part of this profit decline comes from Amazon’s recent investments into its fulfillment network, which it has nearly doubled since the start of the pandemic.

Amazon predicts billions in additional cost next quarter as well, as the company continues to navigate supply chain issues, labor shortages and other ramifications from the pandemic.

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
