OTHER RETAILERS DOING THINGS RIGHT

ITALIAN STYLE
CONGRESS JEWELERS recently hosted a ?Taste of Italy?. The two-day international designer event held at the Naples, FL store featured works from ? you guessed it ? top Italian craftsmen. Designers featured were Chimento, Roberto Coin, Marco Bicego, Di Modolo and Giorgio Visconti.  

ART ATTACK
Community awareness takes many forms including promoting the arts. And h&h jewels of Coconut Grove, FL, did its civic duty ? as well as some solid business ? while participating in an ?Art Crawl? program to promote the Coconut Grove Arts Festival. H& H Jewels flung open their double-security doors to allow customers to view work from local artists, as well as benefit from discounts of 20% to 50%.  

FANCY TALK
PAVE JEWELRY hosted an event designed to stimulate interest in colored diamonds. The California-based jeweler invited colored-diamond supplier Ambrish Sethi, president of Manak Jewels, to speak at the event. Topics included how the color in fancy diamonds is produced, where they are mined, their value and rarity, famous colored diamonds in history, as well as the popularity of colored diamonds amongst celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Catherine Zeta Jones. The presentation was followed by a Q&A session.  

VIKING SHOP
To entice some very special last-minute shoppers to his store last Christmas, jeweler Don Kirckof of ROCHESTER LAPIDARY JEWELERS in Rochester, MN held a ?Men Only? Shopping Night. But this wasn’t just your ordinary bunch of guys hanging around watching football ? this was the football players themselves. Kirckoff’s guests were none other than the Minnesota Vikings. The entire team was invited to the exclusive party and those who attended showed a strong interest in watches by Ice Tek.

MAKING SCENTS
Customer gifts can be a little ho-hum ? like who needs another bottle of jewelry cleaner or a calendar? But MOLINA FINE JEWELERS of Phoenix, AZ, took customer giveaways to the next level by offering its own, exclusive line of women’s perfume, ?Unforgettable II?. Created in Grasse, France, ?the cradle of traditional perfumeries?, according to Molina’s. The perfume, which took a year to create, was blended from more than 20 different scents including exotic flowers, citrus and herbs.

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.”
