TIM AND SUZANNE FOSTER’s historic store, with its distinctive German clock hanging out front, was built in 1872, and taken over by the couple in 1982. With such a well-preserved premises, it was natural that the interior design should follow the lead of the outside, with wooden fittings and ceiling, and large windows at the front of the store to brighten up the space and let customers peer in at the range of designer jewelry, and salespeople look out at the bustle of village life as it passes by. The original building had one large structural beam running the length of the store. To add to the look, additional faux beams were added.

Our panel loved the warmth of the building enhanced by the wood and flowers within. “Lots of old-fashioned charm,” says Karen Karch, with Anne Sowden adding, “I love the warm woods and warm colored fabrics. I could snuggle up here for the winter.” Bob too liked the “strong interior presentation,” as Gwen Carrington praised T. Foster & Co.’s “open-door attitude.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
