During the holidays, jewelry customers run the risk of buying something the recipient doesn’t actually like.

You’d think, then, that a store gift card might be the perfect solution.

In the video below, marketing specialist Jim Ackerman notes that it’s a time of year when jewelers are running many other special offers. Gift cards, meanwhile, are purchased at full price.

So why not discount your gift cards? The strategy “could have a tremendous impact on your sales this holiday season,” he says.

In the video, Ackerman offers his reasoning plus a few tips and tricks to make the idea work.

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.”
