The Atlanta Jewelry Show announced that the 2020 fall edition of its event will be held Oct. 24-25.

The event was originally scheduled for August.

Libby Brown, executive director, said, “After careful consideration, and in light of the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) developments, the new show dates will enable us to provide the experience that our attendees expect and deserve in a safe environment. As everyone has been reminding us, great things happen when the community comes together and connects.

“This date shift offers the perfect opportunity for retailers to stock up for the holidays. We look forward to hosting a wonderful event. Until then, stay safe and healthy!”

The semi-annual show, which celebrates the 70th anniversary of SJTA, will take place at the Cobb Galleria Centre, with a pre-show conference on Friday, Oct. 23.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
