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.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
