Here’s the Answer to December’s Gem Quiz

And congratulations to our winner.

Derrick Allen, the winner of our latest Gem Quiz, admits the stone in question had puzzled him long before he picked up the December copy of INSTORE. “What I thought was turquoise for the longest time, was actually hemimorphite,” he explained, adding that it’s not a gemstone that is seen often, “but it’s always a treat” when it does cross his path. Congratulations to Derrick, a jewelry consultant at Graham Jewelers in Wayzata, MN, who wins this month’s “Jewelry Geek” T-shirt. And also to all this month’s Honorable Mentions for providing the correct answer. Well done, everyone.

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.”
