Once upon a time, dads just wanted a little peace and quiet and maybe some socks on FATHER’S DAY. No more. Dad’s Day is catching up to Mother’s Day as a retail event (an average spend of $125 versus $170 for Mom). Surveys show 80 percent of men wear more than two pieces of jewelry, from necklaces and bracelets to cufflinks and even “right-hand” bands. Make sure to put a range of ideas in front of gift buyers.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
