Hot Sellers: March 2010

Ear cuff sales have been off the charts recently. Don’t know why, but I like it! Not everyone carries them, so I’ve been able to grab lots of new customers via Google searches!  — Janne Etz; Contemporary Concepts, Cocoa, FL

Royal Chain — the beads, and they have a great price-point market with their silver fashion and gold accent line. — Brian Rouse; Bay Area Diamond Co., Green Bay, WI

Tacori is first in bridal and Pandora is still selling well. — John Turrentine; Thomas S. Fox Diamond Jewelers, Grand Rapids, MI

Rainbow sapphires from Michael Couch — a vendor we discovered at The INSTORE Show! — Loann Stokes; Stokes Jewelry Services, Stillwater, MN

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
