(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK – Jewelers of America (JA), the national trade association for businesses serving the fine jewelry marketplace, announced it has partnered with JM Insurance Services, LLC (JMIS) to offer competitive Workers Compensation insurance rates exclusively for JA Members.

The new benefit will provide JA Members access to preferred pricing on Workers Compensation from JMIS to protect their business and employees when illness or accidents strike. If an employee gets hurt, becomes sick or dies due to their job, Workers Compensation provides coverage that includes medical care costs, rehabilitation treatments, lost wages and death benefits.

JMIS is a wholly-owned subsidiary agency of Jewelers Mutual Insurance Group. While Jewelers Mutual specializes exclusively in insuring personal jewelry and jewelry businesses, JMIS extends that scope as a full-service insurance agency.

JMIS Workers Compensation coverage is underwritten by AmTrust North America, a national insurance carrier with an “A-” (Excellent) FSC “XV” rating by A.M. Best. The company provides a broad suite of insurance products including workers compensation coverage for small- and medium-sized businesses.

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.”
