NORWALK, CT — The JCK Las Vegas and Luxury shows will be postponed until later in the year as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Organizers Reed Exhibitions and the Reed Jewelry Group said they hope to be able to announce new dates “shortly.” JCK Las Vegas was originally set for June 2-5, with Luxury to open May 31.

“Our top priority is the health and safety of our exhibitors, attendees, industry partners and staff,” organizers said in a press release.

“After consulting with national experts, our customers, closely monitoring developments and reviewing guidance and advice from renowned national public health officials, the United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), we have decided it is in the best interest of all our JCK community to postpone the Show.”

The shows are among many in the industry that have been postponed or canceled due to the coronavirus. See more of our coverage of the pandemic here.

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.”
