Martin Lindstrom’s “If I Owned a Jewelry Store”

Okay, so some of you weren’t able to get away from your stores for a day or two to come see us at the SMART Show Chicago. Tough luck, but we understand.

While we can’t replicate the fullness and richness of the complete SMART Show experience for you, we can give you a small, hopefully nutritious taste of it. Starting today, we’ll be bringing you selected sessions from the show’s widely-acclaimed education program. (See what retailers said about this year’s marketing-oriented education lineup.)

We’ll launch the series with what was probably the show’s most exclusive session — featuring best-selling author Martin Lindstrom speaking to a reserved-seating-only audience of jewelers on Saturday, April 14. Martin’s topic was a favorite INDESIGN column department of ours, and one that provides a fascinating litmus test for the creativity of any world-class expert — “If I Owned a Jewelry Store”.

Fire up the video to see what one of the world’s foremost marketing minds would do … if he were you.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
