Bachmann said JCK Las Vegas and Luxury are “following the latest guidance from local, state and national authorities as it relates to travel and participation in our events with the intention of keeping our exhibitors and attendees informed as they finalize plans for 2020.”

“We are committed to implementing up to date best practices in accordance with public health guidance, including those issued by the CDC,” she said. “We are working closely with the Sands Expo and the Venetian, who have indicated that their Emergency Management team is closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak at the global, U.S., and local level. They are closely following the guidance of the CDC and Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD) for local direction.

“The jewelry industry is based on personal connections — and many rely on the important business relationships made during JCK Las Vegas and Luxury, one of the most anticipated annual jewelry buying experiences. We will continue to be proactive and take necessary precautions to facilitate an environment for the entire jewelry community to unite, make meaningful new connections and discover new products and technology.

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.”
