Wilkerson Showed Them the Way For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.” You may like 81 US Jewelry Retailers Closed in the 3rd Quarter 74 US Jewelry Retailers Closed in the 2nd Quarter Ann Arnold, CSO of Buyers International Group, Appointed Chairman of The Jewelers Board of Trade Promoted Headlines JYE’S International is Seen in All the Best Cases The Sylvie Collection Knows What Women Want Sylvie Collection From Chain to Casting, National Chain Group Does It All National Chain Group Advertisement Latest Trending Videos Press Releases3 hours ago New PGI-Commissioned Study Offers Retailers Insights Into How to Ease Customers’ Concerns Over COVID During the Holiday Season Press Releases6 hours ago Accutron Lights Up Empire State Building Celebrating 60th Anniversary Press Releases7 hours ago Industry Experts Gather for Collaboration on Ethics and Sustainability in Gold and Diamond Enterprise Press Releases7 hours ago Analytical Gemology and Jewelry Head Says GIA Is “Wrong” to Grade Lab-Grown Diamonds the Same as Mined” Big Survey10 hours ago 25% of Jewelers Are Drinking More This Year Because of COVID-19 Big Survey2 weeks ago Jewelers Plan to Vote for This Presidential Candidate on Nov. 3 Benchmarks4 weeks ago 13 Jewelry Store Shop Areas That Put Bench Jewelers Center Stage Products4 weeks ago The Overlooked Jewelry Trend Started By Princess Beatrice At Her Wedding Press Releases4 weeks ago 9-Carat Diamond Found at Crater of Diamonds State Park Headlines3 weeks ago CNN Delves Into Lab-Grown Diamond Debate Sponsored Content1 week ago A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic?
