(PRESS RELEASE) MJSA, the U.S. trade association dedicated to professional excellence in jewelry making and design, has launched an online page of resources offering guidance and updates on the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis. It includes:

  • Updates from MJSA on related legislation (such as the Families First Coronavirus Response Act).
  • Links to articles from MJSA Journal addressing how to best prepare for and weather economic downturns. (Links to upcoming webinars, podcasts, and other related resources will be added on a regular basis.)
  • Updates on current coronavirus-related initiatives from other industry trade associations.
  • Links to pertinent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Small Business Administration, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and other national organizations regarding safety practices, loan opportunities, and related assistance.
  • Links to each state’s current directives regarding the pandemic, as well as available statewide loans and grant programs, among other local resources.

MJSA will continue to monitor developments related to COVID-19 and update the resources page on a regular basis.

In addition, MJSA has opened its entire online Article & Video Library to the industry at large, to ensure that businesses can access whatever information they need to help them navigate through this uncertain and challenging time.

“This is a time when one of the greatest enemies can be misinformation that stokes fears and drives panic,” says MJSA President/CEO David W. Cochran. “We want to counter that by simplifying access to expert information and best practices, and by working with other associations to help the industry weather this brutally difficult period.”

Both the COVID-19 Resources page and the Online Article & Video Library can be found at MJSA.org.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
