How to Celebrate National Dress Up Your Pet Day, Plus Other Big Dates for January

And don’t miss National Smith Day if you’re a goldsmith!





6 The Bible doesn’t specify how many wise men came to see Jesus; the idea there were three came from the number of gifts. But let’s not get caught up in details: THREE KINGS’ DAY, which marks the “official” end of the Christmas season, is a date worthy of your attention. In Hispanic culture, Epiphany, or Dia de los Tres Reyes, is often observed with the giving of gifts to children. Get your gold charms and kids’ jewelry ready and consider ways to market the date.

6 On NATIONAL SMITH DAY, urge all the Smiths in your customer database to come in and celebrate their Smithness today with another smith: their local goldsmith or silversmith!

14 On NATIONAL DRESS UP YOUR PET DAY, encourage clients to share photos on Facebook of their pets specially outfitted to win a prize, advises Megan Crabtree, president of Crabtree Consulting.

17 Today marks DITCH YOUR RESOLUTION DAY. But don’t give up yours — if you can hold on for just another week, there is a good chance that desired behavior can become a much-easier-to-keep habit.



When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
