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.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
