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.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
