Want a way for your customers to leave your business this holiday season feeling they’ve done some good for a few cents? Take your lead from an independent pet store, Urban Tails Pet Supply in Minneapolis and offer a “register round-up”. “Customers can round up to the nearest dollar, with the difference going to a (different local rescue every month),” manager Megan Trombley told INSTORE’s sister magazine PETS+. “It has been really helping the animals in our community.”

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.”
