The show, which historically has taken place in April, was originally moved to March due to venue scheduling restrictions from ongoing renovation work at the Miami Beach Convention Center.

Fortunately, the projects that were present when the show was moved to March have been completed, and JIS is now able to shift dates back to the usual April Show pattern.

“The opportunity to move the dates of the show back to mid-April is a big win for attendees and exhibitors,” said Jordan Tuchband, industry vice president of JIS Shows.

“The new dates are much more ideal for seasonal Mother’s Day buying, will significantly lower travel expenses, and increase the diversity of product available for purchase on the show floor.”

The JIS April Show allows the jewelry industry an easy-to-shop buying event to restock after early-year sales and prepare for the summer selling season with the latest trends. Visit jisshow.com or call +1 (800) 840-5612 for more information on attending or exhibiting.

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.”
