Two other retailers have already left the new shopping plaza.

Manya Jewelers in Canoga Park, CA lost $135,000 in merchandise after the store was plundered by two burglars who brandished a gun, the Los Angeles Daily News reports. The article says the robbery wasn’t part of a trend, though the incident does add to the troubles the open-air plaza has had since the ribbon was cut in September. Two retail tenants have already left the mall, and the landlord recently implemented paid parking without notifying merchants or visitors, who also had trouble operating the pay stations.

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
