Banish These Words in the New Year, and More January Events

Each year, Lake Superior State University releases its Dishonor List of Banished Words. The newest list included “so” (to start a sentence, as in “So, I am totally fed up with this overused word”), “price point” (when usually one of the words will work just fine), “break the internet” (classic clickbait headline), and “problematic” (“problem” does the job well in two fewer syllables). We’d also add “it’s on my radar” and “paradigm shift.” Actually, outlaw any word that makes you sound corporate and, hence, not human.

JAN. 6 Three Kings’ Day is observed with the giving of gifts to children, so get your gold charms jewelry ready and market the date.

JAN. 7 Join the jewelry Twitterati in chronicling this year’s Golden Globes, then blog about the hit jewelry selections.

JAN. 28 If you haven’t staged a promotion yet in 2017, one pegged to the Chinese New Year could be your first.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
