August Is Black Business Month, Middle Children’s Day and More

It’s also your chance to help out a budding entrepreneur on National Lemonade Day.





1 BLACK BUSINESS MONTH is held in August every year to recognize Black-owned businesses across the country. It’s your chance to show support and encourage minority entrepreneurs. Can you be more purposeful in your sourcing? Join in a community event? Help promote up-and-coming artisans? It’s not just about doing the right thing. There are myriad business benefits to exposing your business to diversity and new communities.

6 The blurb for NATIONAL FRESH BREATH DAY says dentists and oral care professionals “applaud this day dedicated to fighting bad breath.” They aren’t the only ones. Your customers will too. At the very least, hand out mints in the morning huddle along with tips on maintaining sweet smelling oral hygiene.

8 Bust out a good wine (not too old, not too young) and invite middlings to come in and celebrate today, MIDDLE CHILDREN’S DAY, with some specially selected and priced merchandise (not too high, not too low).

20 It’s NATIONAL LEMONADE DAY! Check with your staff to see if any of their children want to set up a lemonade stand outside the store for the day.



Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
