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.

When There’s No Succession Plan, Call Wilkerson

Bob Wesley, owner of Robert C. Wesley Jewelers in Scottsdale, Ariz., was a third-generation jeweler. When it was time to enjoy life on the other side of the counter, he weighed his options. His lease was nearing renewal time and with no succession plan, he decided it was time to call Wilkerson. There was plenty of inventory to sell and at first, says Wesley, he thought he might try to manage a sale himself. But he’s glad he didn’t. “There’s no way I could have done this as well as Wilkerson,” he says. Wilkerson took responsibility for the entire event, with every detail — from advertising to accounting — done, dusted and managed by the Wilkerson team. “It’s the complete package,” he says of the Wilkerson method of helping jewelers to easily go on to the next phase of their lives. “There’s no way any retailer can duplicate what they’ve done.”
