(Press Release)
Citizen has announced that it will participate in the Milano Salone (Milan Design Week) 2016, one of the world’s largest design festivals.

In an effort to explore the relationship between light and time through the evolution of Eco-Drive technology, Citizen exhibited at Milan Design Week in 2014 for the first time. That installation was a collaboration of Citizen’s in-house design team and Tsuyoshi Tane, a member of Paris architectural design firm DGT. It was honored with a 2014 Milano Design Award and also earned recognition at the London International Awards 2015. An exhibition to show the award-winning installation in Japan was held in 2014 at the Spiral Building in Aoyama, Tokyo. The event attracted more than 70,000 visitors. This year, Citizen will show the installation again in Milano under the same design collaboration as before.

The company in 1976 developed the world’s first light-powered analog watch. Later known as Eco-Drive, this proprietary Citizen technology allows a watch to keep telling the correct time by using virtually any light source to generate its own power, thereby eliminating the need to replace batteries. Watches using this technology are now available in more than 100 countries around the world.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
