1 When you think of senior citizens, baby boomers probably don’t immediately come to mind, but that’s increasingly who they are. During OLDER AMERICANS MONTH, devise a project that targets this still important demographic — maybe a tie-in with Bob Dylan’s 80th birthday (May 24, 1941). Boomers may have stopped blowing in the wind, but they still like to get out and experience and learn new things.

1 As some of the bigger corporate names in jewelry celebrate GOLD MONTH, hitch a ride on their awareness efforts. Just let your customers know you’ve got the really cool stuff — designs that highlight gold’s unique and enduring qualities.

1 During NATIONAL MOVING MONTH, tie up with a real estate agent to put together a greeting package that includes a welcome note, a gift certificate and a flier outlining your services. Everyone needs a local jeweler. Let it be you.

12 On NATIONAL RECEPTIONISTS’ DAY, encourage their bosses to show some appreciation for all their hard work with a small gift. How about a sweat-drop-shaped brooch they could proudly wear on their lapel?

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.
