MasterClass: Redefining Retail as Slow Retail

Associate Professor of Interior Design at The Ohio State University Rebekah Matheny explores why retailers have an important role in creating a sustainable future through “slow fashion.”




WHILE WE ARE all consumers, how and where we consume is just as important as what we consume. As fashion designers seek to create a sustainable future through slow fashion philosophies, including product longevity and the circular economy, the retail store has an important role to play in the education of consumers through the services offered and communication of these principles. In this video, join Rebekah Matheny, Associate Professor of Interior Design at The Ohio State University, to learn about an approach for translating slow fashion’s methodology into a slow retail design process.

This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
