2005: more sweat, more ideas, more love …

IT’S DECEMBER AGAIN? As we end our fourth year of publication here at Instore magazine, things are definitely winging along at the speed of light. 

Some highlights: 

In an independent poll of close to 500 jewelers conducted by the Jewelry Industry Opinion Council, retailers chose Instore, for the third consecutive year, as the industry magazine they value most, giving us more votes than the other four major American industry publications combined. (You’ll notice that, in this month’s Editor’s Note picture, my head is a wee bit bigger than usual. Those survey results are the reason.)  

Like my head, our mag got bigger ? much bigger, and we launched a bunch of new idea-filled departments for you ? monthly features like ?Benchmarks?, ?Style Counsel?, ?Know It All?, and ?Manager’s To-Do List?. Plus, we improved, expanded and otherwise refined other popular sections like ?Cool Stores?, ?Tip Sheet?, and ?New Arrivals?. Plus, we gave you some of our biggest lead packages ever ? including a 50-page ?America’s Coolest Stores? edition and a ground-breaking analysis of a jeweler at the crossroads we published in October called ?What’s Next??  

Whew! We worked hard ? really hard ? to give our readers an information package they could use to make real improvements in their businesses. We hope we succeeded. Now it’s time to turn our sights to 2oo6, when we’re determined to provide you with even more rich, chewy goodness in our expanded editorial package, debuting next month. See you then!

Wilkerson Testimonials | MSG Jewelers

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
