BIG NEWS for those of you coming to the inaugural SMART Show Dallas. Our show keynote speaker — Scott Ginsberg, aka “The Nametag Guy” — is signed, sealed and about to be delivered to an audience of jewelers this September.

(Quickly, for the uninitiated: Being held September 8-10, 2012 at The Gaylord Texan Resort in Grapevine, TX, the SMART Show Dallas is the first show ever to have a 100 percent holiday-oriented education program. The promise: smart ideas and great shopping just in time for the most important season of the year.]

Ginsberg will be at the show Saturday and Sunday, handling a keynote speech, a panel interview session, and also serving double-duty as a roving reporter/on-camera host for our video crew.

If Scott’s name doesn’t immediately ring a bell, he’s the guy who has been wearing a nametag 24/7 for more than 10 years. Sounds like a huge gimmick, and it is. But the guy behind the gimmick is an exciting, inspirational speaker who we think will have a real impact on you. Some of you caught Scott at The SMART Show Chicago in 2011, where he got a terrific reaction from jewelers who attended. (See highlights here.)

Scott’s forte is approachability, an important skill for retailers. He manages to make you laugh (a lot), while still challenging you to stand out and be different. It’s a potent combination. This year, we’re looking forward to seeing how Scott translates his theories to a holiday environment.

Anyway, Scott is just one more smart reason to come to the SMART Show Dallas. Retailers, go here to reserve your spot at the show!

Want More “Me” Time? Wilkerson Will Get You There!

It was time. Teri Allen and her brother, Nick Pavlich, Jr., had been at the helm of Dearborn Jewelers of Plymouth in Plymouth, Mich., for decades. Their father, Nick Pavlich, Sr., had founded the store in 1950, but after so many wonderful years helping families around Michigan celebrate their most important moments, it was time to get some “moments” of their own. Teri says Wilkerson was the logical choice to run their retirement sale. “They’re the only company that specializes in closing jewelry stores,” she says. During the sale, Teri says a highlight was seeing so many generations of customers who wanted to buy “that one last piece of jewelry from us.” Would she recommend Wilkerson? Absolutely. “There is no way that I would have been able to do this by myself.”
