Snowden’s Jewelers has been in business for over 17 years, and according to its website, Chris Snowden has been in the business “his entire life.” It’s located in Wilmington, NC, and exclusively sells the Original Wilmington Destination Bracelet at the store. This color ad appears in the coastal and tourist magazines in the store’s area.

I love the notion of something exclusively designed and sold at a store especially if the location is in a heavy tourist area. According to Chris, the ad was originated by Montesino (the bracelet designer that sells these bracelets to jewelers across the country) — and enhanced by his own graphic designer. The ad is no more than a one-column by 4-inch ad, so I have but one thing to say: Chris, have you ever heard the saying “less is more?” How much copy can you fit into this tiny ad? I actually had to change my reading glasses from a 2.00 magnification to 2.50 just to see what you had to say!

Pop for the extra inch or two. If it’s really worth selling, let’s not try to make your prospective customers go cross-eyed trying to see it. And it’s OK to leave something for your salespeople to talk about when customers come to your store. And by the way, I don’t notice your website in the ad — where you really have the space to talk about the bracelet. But don’t make me scroll, Chris. After all, as William Shakespeare once wrote, “Brevity is the soul of wit.”

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.”
