Need a Standout Window Design? Reach Out to a Local College’s Art Students

Is there a college that offers design or visual merchandising courses near you? Why not set aside one of your front windows each month (start with bridal this October) for young stylists to show off their skills. Tell them they can use whatever props they like, no matter how unconventional (motorcycle parts, old photos, their own funky mannequins …). Good or bad, the results are likely to be head-turning, and people will appreciate the chance you are giving students to build their portfolios.

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.
