Editor’s Note: Bored? Browse Bits of Inspiration on Our Website





[dropcap cap=Y]ou’re sitting in the store, bored out of your skull, and want something to do right away? Go to INSTOREMAG.COM. Between our “Work Smart” daily tips e-mail bulletins, our “Today’s To Do” and “Inspire Me Today” sections, plus regular blogs, you’ll leave our site with more useful ideas than you can handle.[/dropcap]

One example, from a September blog post (of mine):

“How important are bathrooms? I’m reading Tom Peters’ The Little Big Things: 163 Ways To Pursue Excellence.

“By ‘little big things,’ Peters is talking about the details of a business. He is saying that before you spend on a $500,000 redesign, first go for a $5 vase of flowers on a table.


“One great example is bathrooms. Customers remember bathrooms — the bad and the good. As a first ‘little big thing,’ get your bathroom right. Institute a procedure: Clean every morning. Check every hour. Make sure it smells nice. Add flowers. Hang pictures.”

You were bored. You came to our site. And you left with a plan. That’s how it works. So visit often.

And don’t miss our latest blogs on INSTOREMAG.COM. Retailers are invited to start your own blogs, too. (Ever wanted to share your life story with your fellow jewelers? This is your chance.)

Wishing you the very best in business!

Wilkerson Testimonials

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
