(PRESS RELEASE) The Atlanta Jewelry Show is launching two new feature areas for the 2019 spring event in Atlanta, GA, Executive Director Libby Brown announced.

As the buying habits of today’s consumers evolve, independent retailers are adapting e-commerce strategies to enhance – not replace – their sales opportunities and grow their business, according to a press release from AJS. The AJS E-Tail Pavilion will provide products, services and education to help retailers integrate e-commerce into their existing business model.

“Our commitment to fostering the growth and success of our retailers is the foundation for this investment into expanding the scope of the spring event,” Brown said. “We believe that our retailers are in a state of transition to compete in the digital marketplace, therefore we are committed to providing the tools and training to make that happen.”

The AJS Occasions Pavilion will include products that complement traditional jewelry store offerings, aligning to the modern needs of today’s customers, according to the release.

Regarding the Occasions Pavilion, Brown said, “In an effort to stay solvent in the marketplace, many of our independent retailers have expanded the selections in their stores to include the non-traditional jewelry and gift items. The goal of AJS is to create the opportunity for the retailer to discover new products and services to generate additional traffic and increase sales in their stores.”

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.”
