Along with the generation’s oft-recounted “delayed adulthood,” it appears there’s been some delayed development of basic skills among millennials as well, and a wave of companies want to be resources of information instead of just sources for products. Brands including The Home Depot, Procter & Gamble and Sherwin-Williams have all started offering classes and online tutorials to teach such basic skills as using a tape measure, mopping floors and mowing lawns. Millennials have shown they are eager to learn, so it might be worth giving some thought to what else millennials might not know how to do — cleaning silver, changing a watch battery, stringing beads—and how to incorporate those activities into offerings in a non-condescending way.

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.”
