It’s using an “omni-digital” approach.

Jewelry Television in Knoxville, TN, saw a 15.7 percent sales increase in 2016, growth that coincided with a major expansion of its headquarters, the Knoxville News Sentinel reports.

The growth follows JTV’s introduction of an “omni-digital” approach.

“We can interact with the customer on a mobile device, we’ve got a great app to do that,” said Tim Matthews, the company’s CEO. “On the website we’ve got a robust catalog of more than 100,000 items. We have television people can watch and become educated and entertained.”

Last year, the privately held firm saw its number of customers grow by nearly 12 percent, according to the News Sentinel.

One phase of the headquarters expansion, which included a new building along with other elements, including an additional floor in an existing structure, has been completed.

Two more phases of renovation and expansion are in the works.

One aspect of the next phase will be a 400-seat auditorium so that JTV’s broadcasts can have a live audience.

The company has 1,500 employees in Knoxville, and 1,700 in all.

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.”
