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 | Zadok Master Jewelers

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.”
