[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.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
