We’re sure you’ve read stories about people spending ridiculous amounts of money on diamond-studded collars for their dogs. So how about for one week only — National Pet Week — you get in some of the “better” pet stuff for one case or even just one special section on your website? Market it, maybe even do a co-promotion with the local shelter. And some of that “ridiculous money” might just flow your way.

The May is Gold Month campaign may be the baby of big jewelry retailers and the World Gold Council, but grab those corporate coattails. After all, May is filled with traditional gifting opportunities.

03

National Teacher Day. Donate jewelry to a teacher who has won a recent award. Alert the local paper and schedule that teacher to come in and receive his or her prize.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Why This Fourth-Generation Jeweler Chose Wilkerson for a Very Special Sale

Parian & Sons of Franklin Lakes, NJ was founded in the early part of the 20th century. But even stores that have successfully made it through the Great Depression, a World War and the Woodstock Generation must come to an end. With no family wanting to continue the tradition, the time was right for Glenn Parian and his wife, Maria, to retire. And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
