INSTORE Wins Jesse H. Neal Award for Best Website
INSTOREMAG.COM was named Best Website in its revenue division, and sister publication INVISION (for eyecare professionals) won Best Single Issue in its revenue category.

SmartWork Media, the business-to-business publisher of INSTORE, INVISION and PETS+, has won two Jesse H. Neal Awards.

INSTOREMAG.com won for Best Website (brand revenue of less than $3 million). INVISION won in the Single Issue category for Nov/Dec 2018 (brand revenue of less than $3 million).

The Neal Awards are widely regarded as one of business-to-business publishing’s most important awards competitions. INSTORE has previously won the Neal Awards’ most prestigious award for Best Single Issue in both 2011 and 2015. In 2013, INSTORE Managing Editor Eileen McClelland won for Best Instructional Content for her story “The New Rules of Sales” (April 2012).

The winners were announced at an awards ceremony in New York City on March 29, 2019.

“These awards signal a vote of confidence to our marketing partners that they are investing in best-of-class publications and digital content platforms. And to our readers, that they are benefiting from the leading information resources an industry can provide,” says Matthijs Braakman, publisher and chief executive officer of SmartWork Media. “The acknowledgement of INSTOREMAG.COM for Best Website is a particularly wonderful indication that the investments we have made in our digital transformation are gaining momentum.” INSTORE magazine, under Group Editorial Director David Squires’ guidance, debuted the website’s new design in the Fall of 2018.

With the addition of the two most recent Neal Awards, SmartWork Media has earned 135 international awards since 2004, making the company one of the most highly decorated publishers, per title, in the world.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
