Company rents out entire building in Soho.

John Hardy, a Hong Kong-based jewelry brand, will open its first U.S. location after signing a lease to take over all three floors of a Soho building in New York City, the Commercial Observer reports. Real estate broker Matthew Seigel told the news outlet that the company picked Soho “because of the heavy foot traffic in the retail-focused neighborhood,” noting that the 118 Prince St. location “stood out particularly because it is a one-purpose building – something that’s a rarity on the street.” All three floors total 3,600 square feet, and asking rent on the ground floor was $1,200 per square foot, the article says.

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.”
