[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!

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
