If there’s something you want to improve about your store, start measuring it, says marketing specialist Jimmy DeGroot. 

“The mere act of measuring makes things happen; it makes things change,” he says.

DeGroot tells the story of a jeweler in Texas who wanted to boost his store’s closing ratio. With no announcement, the jeweler started posting the closing ratio on the wall each day.

The staff looked at the closing ratio and found that it was lower than they would have expected. Soon, it began to rise.

DeGroot advises jewelers to “begin the discipline of regular observation.”

When Liquidation Is the Best Option, This Legendary Jeweler Chose Wilkerson

George Koueiter & Sons Jewelers, a 65-year old jewelry institution in Grosse Pointe, MI, had always been a mainstay in this suburban Detroit community. But when owners George and Paul Koueiter were ready to retire, they made the decision to close rather than sell. “We decided our best option to do the liquidation sale was Wilkerson,” says Paul Koueiter. The results, says George Koueiter, exceeded expectations and the process was easy. “Wilkerson just kept us in mind,” says George. “They never did anything without asking and whatever they asked us to do was just spot on.”
