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

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
