The top answer is no surprise.

As a jeweler, you meet lots of people — and there are probably certain things about them that you focus on right away. Have you ever wondered if your peers in the industry notice the same things?

As we collect responses for this year’s Big Survey, we’re bringing you a few highlights from years past — Big Survey Flashbacks, if you will.

Today we bring you a question from our 2013 survey: “When you meet people, the first thing you notice about them is …”

The results:

  • Their jewelry – 22%
  • Their smile/teeth – 22%
  • Their attitude/demeanor – 20%
  • Their eyes/facial expression – 17%
  • Their overall appearance – 3%
  • Their physique – 3%
  • Other – 2%

Want to have your say on the industry and what it means to own or manage an American jewelry store in 2017? Click HERE to take the latest INSTORE Big Survey. (The survey will probably take about 20 minutes to complete and is designed to be taken solely by store owners and managers.)

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.”
