Mad About You

Meet some of your peers in this month’s issue (oh, and three more things …).

 

YOU KNOW how we at instore love our tips leads — 50 Ways To Do This, 99 Techniques To Prevent That, 10 Actions To Ensure the Eventuality of the Other Thing, etc. But what we love even more is writing about you. And we don’t mean writing about you as businesspeople with interesting stores. We mean writing about you as individuals. That made this month’s lead one of our absolute favorites to produce.

In “Characters,” we introduce you to some of the one-of-a-kind personalities we’ve met over the years. Meet “The Creator” whose business skyrocketed when she devised a campaign of almost too sexy urinal advertisements for local restaurants. Or “The Author,” who has written three popular novels (and counting) between waiting on customers. Or “The Optimist” who regards her business as “a love affair” and whose sunny disposition has made her an industry legend. And finally, “The Perfectionist,” who still sends our editors a list of every typo and grammatical error in instore each month. (Thankfully, fewer than there used to be.)

You’ll meet many others in this fun, revealing story. Hope you enjoy it.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
