Earth Day is Your Chance to Show Off Jewelry’s Green Credentials, and Other Important Dates for March

22 The world is a warmer place buffeted by more extreme weather events than when EARTH DAY was first held 50 years ago. Join in the celebrations by playing up jewelry lines that feature recycled gold, estate diamonds and other Earth-friendly materials. Sponsor Earth Day activities (like beach cleanups, tree-plantings and other community events that promote the environment) to underscore how our industry — jewelry — is committed to responsible business practices.

5 Mark GEOLOGISTS DAY with a fun quiz: See who among your customers can name your state’s official rock. If they get that, ask them the gemstones of adjoining states.

9 THE MASTERS TOURNAMENT in Augusta, GA, begins today. Create a contest with your staff for what you consider to be a “hole in one” over the four days of the golf event.

23 On LOVERS DAY, invite clients in for a toast of champagne to celebrate “just because,” suggests Megan Crabtree of Crabtree Consulting.

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.”
