The ‘brainsquad’: all for one, one for all

AS INSTORE GROWS, more and more people around the industry are asking me how we have managed to get inside retailers’ heads to the extent we have. 

My answer: INSTORE’S “Brain Squad” – a group of dedicated American jewelry retailers who complete short monthly surveys for us online. Surveys take only about ten minutes per month, and provide a ridiculously large amount of useful data for INSTORE. Even more important than the data is the insight we receive into jewelers’ minds. Your concerns, your stories, what makes you tick. 

For all of you who have been with us from the beginning, and those who have joined along the way, I can only say “Thank you! You’re the best!” And for those of you who are not yet members, I really encourage you to join.  

You’re probably asking “What’s in it for me?” Hey, I like where your head’s at. Here’s your answer:  

A better INSTORE. Each new member we add makes our magazine stronger. How much more powerful and useful would these surveys be if we can boost our monthly response numbers up to 500, 1,000, or even more?

More useful information for you, as a member. After you complete each month’s survey, you can access all other retailers’ answers (with individual identities kept anonymous). It’s a great chance to learn, and get more ideas for your business than we could ever publish in INSTORE.  

A little something to wear. Each new “Brain Squad” member receives a very cool (and very free) t-shirt to celebrate your panel membership.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
