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.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
