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.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
