Plumb Club to Host Webinar on Sustainability Marketing and Legal Claims

It’s set for Aug. 24.




(PRESS RELEASE) The Plumb Club is pleased to present an essential retail-learning presentation in connection with Jewelers Vigilance Committee (JVC). The virtual presentation, “Talking Green! What Can You Really Say in Sustainability Marketing?”, will be held in the Jewelers Resource Center Auditorium on Wednesday, August 24 at 1pm (EDT) and is open to the entire jewelry industry.

As consumers increasingly respond to sustainability claims, eco-friendly products and environmentally focused concepts, what can a retailer legally advertise and verbally say to ensure the language is neither misleading nor deceiving? The FTC has an entire set of guidelines on how to talk about everything from solar-powered to recycled materials! However, these guides are up for revision and the acceptable language is changing quickly! Retailers need to be prepared and stay informed.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
