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

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
