Mad About You

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

Published

on

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.

If you do, and you’re feeling like you like us, really like us (in the Sally Field, Oscar-winning sense), thank us by doing one or more of the following things:

  • Renew your mag subscription at instoremag.com/subscribe
  • Join instoremag.com at instoremag.com/register
  • Save a spot on your calendar in April for instore’s the smart jewelry show, to be held at Chicago’s Navy Pier from April 24-26, 2010

Wishing you the very best business,

David Squires

Wilkerson Testimonials | MSG Jewelers

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
