Celebrate An American Passion: Drive-Thru Day Is Approaching, Plus More Important Dates for July

24 Even before the COVID-19 crisis, one of the few ways Walmart and other traditional retailers were beating Amazon was with the message, “buy online, pick up in-store.” On National Drive-Thru Day, offer a promotion for anyone who opts to do business with you this way (while staying mindful of security considerations). Also, search for ways to improve your curbside pickup game. It’s a convenience Americans can’t get enough of.

7 On TELL THE TRUTH DAY, go the whole day without telling a lie (which includes exaggerations and the “little white” variety). Yep, could be a long day. But the truth shall set you free!

13 For EMBRACE YOUR GEEKNESS DAY, hold a coffee morning/gemological tour through your store. Start with the quartzes and move up to the diamonds.

26 On this date 30 years ago, PRESIDENT GEORGE H.W. BUSH SIGNED THE AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT (ADA) INTO LAW. Today, check that your store is fully compliant with the letter and spirit of the law.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
