Big Survey: Jewelers from KS, MO and WI, We Love You. But Jewelers from DE, MS, WY … Don’t You Love Us?

JEWELERS FROM KANSAS, Missouri, and Wisconsin topped our list of the most community-minded, generous with their time, and just all-round coolest people, at least when it comes to taking industry surveys. Those three states all hit above their weight by a factor of at least 2.0 in terms of population size to contributions to the 2019 Big Survey. At the other end of the scale, just three states have yet to be represented in the Big Survey – Delaware, Mississippi and Wyoming.

Luckily for jewelers in those three states, the 2019 Big Survey is still open (just click HERE). Be quick though, we’ll be closing it soon.

(Please note the Big Survey is designed for owners or managers)

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.”
