TO STAY SHARP and motivated, it’s important to take some time off work every now and then. A nice vacation can be just the thing to re-energize a weary jeweler.

Gene the Jeweler, a fictional character created by marketing specialist Jimmy DeGroot, understands this. Or so he says.

Gene takes his team to Las Vegas once a year for the trade shows. That counts a vacation, doesn’t it?

Or perhaps you define a vacation as time spent away from your team. If that’s the case, the Gene takes one every single day when he leaves work.

Or maybe Gene just doesn’t get it.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
