Bring Excitement Back to Father’s Day, and More Important Dates for June

On Splurge Day, your customers should be thinking about one place: your store.





20 Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Jamie Foxx, Pharrell Williams. Think of the biggest male fashion icons of the last two decades, and you’ll realize two things: Most of them are nearly 60, and they all wear jewelry. Why then is it so hard for people to associate jewelry with FATHER’S DAY? Jewelers must take some of the blame. Kids and wives seem particularly challenged when it comes to Father’s Day gifts. They need ideas. And jewelers should be providing them. Get imaginative and ramp up your marketing this June.

1 Today is SAY SOMETHING NICE DAY. Consultant Megan Crabtree suggests you create a bulletin board in the back of the store where all team members can put a Post-it stating one thing they love about a team member.

8 On NATIONAL BEST FRIENDS DAY, be sure to post gift ideas on social media that people can purchase for their BFF. One that immediately comes to mind: matching bracelets.

18 It’s a scientifically proven fact: Occasional self-treats are good for mental health. On NATIONAL SPLURGE DAY, come up with selections or a shared marketing plan (maybe with a pedicurist) that encourages your customers to reward themselves.

Time to Do What You've Always Wanted? Time to Call Wilkerson.

It was time. Teri Allen and her brother, Nick Pavlich, Jr., had been at the helm of Dearborn Jewelers of Plymouth in Plymouth, Mich., for decades. Their father, Nick Pavlich, Sr., had founded the store in 1950, but after so many wonderful years helping families around Michigan celebrate their most important moments, it was time to get some “moments” of their own. Teri says Wilkerson was the logical choice to run their retirement sale. “They’re the only company that specializes in closing jewelry stores,” she says. During the sale, Teri says a highlight was seeing so many generations of customers who wanted to buy “that one last piece of jewelry from us.” Would she recommend Wilkerson? Absolutely. “There is no way that I would have been able to do this by myself.”
