Mad About You

Published

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.

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.”
