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.

01

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.

Consider hosting a men’s-only shopping night a week before Mother’s Day. But don’t forget the non-traditional gifters: kids to moms, moms to adult daughters who are moms, and grandchildren to grandmothers.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
