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.

When Liquidation Is the Best Option, This Legendary Jeweler Chose Wilkerson

George Koueiter & Sons Jewelers, a 65-year old jewelry institution in Grosse Pointe, MI, had always been a mainstay in this suburban Detroit community. But when owners George and Paul Koueiter were ready to retire, they made the decision to close rather than sell. “We decided our best option to do the liquidation sale was Wilkerson,” says Paul Koueiter. The results, says George Koueiter, exceeded expectations and the process was easy. “Wilkerson just kept us in mind,” says George. “They never did anything without asking and whatever they asked us to do was just spot on.”
