More INSTORE readers chose Stuller than any other company as their best new supplier in 2016. Tied in second place were Gabriel & Co., Lafonn and Midas Chain, followed by Simply Diamonds, alone in third place.

“It’s hard to beat Stuller,” noted one of the 375 owners and managers who answered the question, one of 75 in the 2016 Big Survey, whose full results will be published in the October issue of INSTORE.

This is the 10th annual Big Survey, in which INSTORE polls nearly 700 owners and managers of jewelry stores in the U.S. and Canada, asking questions that range from total revenue to totally embarrassing scenes they’ve found their employees in.

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.”
