[dropcap cap=L]ots of news this month so let’s get cracking. First off, if it isn’t already apparent, is a brand-new, thoroughly freshened version of your favorite magazine.[/dropcap]

For the last six months, we’ve been discussing how to make our contents sharper and more useful. We decided that some things were too long and needed to be shorter. And that some things were too short and needed to be longer. Others were simply getting a bit stale and needed to be shaken up. We also found a few new nooks and crannies where we could pack in additional useful ideas for you.

Here are a few new additions you’ll see in this issue (with more in the coming months):

A new monthly series, “Building the Store,” in which we follow Barry Benowitz of Gail Jewelers in Palm Desert, CA, as he constructs a new store.

A new watch column, “In Time,” designed to help you improve at selling watches by their details.

“Last Laugh,” a column we stole from our sister publication, indesign (which is focusing more this year on fine jewelry design) and that will be alternating with “True Tales” and even the occasional “In the End.”

Drop me an e-mail to let me know what you think. Dying to hear your reaction!

In other news, I’m proud to announce that, in November, FOLIO: magazine once again named instore the country’s very best business-to-business retail magazine. It was our third win in four years and we’re starting to think in terms of a dynasty.

Wishing you the very best business,

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
