Medical researcher Julius Comroe once defined serendipity as “looking for a needle in a haystack and getting out of it with the farmer’s daughter.” On SERENDIPITY DAY, the idea of “happy accidents” sounds like a great theme for a sales event — either with surprise giveaways, or as an excuse to try something like a marketing exercise you’ve never done before. You never know.

  • August 4 On Single Working Women Day, hold a “Bring a Friend Event” to celebrate their contributions to society.
  • August 28 The U.S. Open Tennis Tournament gets under way today. Mark Chris Evert’s accidental launch 30 years ago of a jewelry tradition with a display devoted to “tennis bracelets.”
  • August 28 Ninety-five years ago, a Long Island station broadcast The First Radio Commercial. It cost $100 and dragged on for 10 minutes. Today you can get short spots for less than that — especially at this time of year when things are slow. Shop around.

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.”
