(PRESS RELEASE) NEENAH, WI — As a result of suspicious activity detected earlier this month within a state in the Midwest, Jewelers Mutual arranged additional surveillance for commercial lines policyholders in the immediate area.

This is the second time in in the past four months Jewelers Mutual has provided additional surveillance to policyholders in ongoing efforts to keep members safe and secure. In October 2019, extra security surveillance was provided to policyholders in the state of California during widespread power outages.

As an ongoing best practice to help protect your business, Jewelers Mutual strongly encourages all jewelers to secure merchandise within a safe or vault. Jewelers should also review our do’s and don’ts during a jewelry store robbery. Below are a few of the don’ts:

  • Don’t call police, press a hold-up alarm, or panic button
  • Don’t make eye contact with or threaten the robbers in anyway
  • Don’t pursue the robbers after they leave

Along with advising jewelers of what can be done to prevent crime, Jewelers Mutual will continue to monitor developing criminal situations and deploy additional targeted loss prevention services to protect commercial lines policyholders and the jewelry industry when possible.

“Jewelers Mutual is committed as a proactive business partner in the protection of jewelry and providing a safe environment to our customers,” said Larry Spicer, vice president of Loss Prevention and Risk Management Services.

Policyholders are also encouraged to contact their agent with any questions regarding additional security measures they can leverage to protect their property.

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.”
