NEW YORK – The Plumb Club is pleased to announce a new series of podcasts produced to provide retailers with information and insights across a variety of disciplines. The subjects, which will be introduced monthly, will cover a group of business topics and consumer insights, supplying retailers with knowledge and immediately actionable steps that they can use to impact their business.

It was decided to release this new educational tool now as many retailers are using this time as an opportunity to learn about how they can make their retail stores stronger once business resumes. The first two podcasts are available now and are focused on the bridal category, often the point of entry for many jewelry retailers:

Kevin talks about consumer perceptions of jewelry stores and how to change the perception with memorable and fun experiences. He explains how to reach and communicate with today’s consumer and underscores how having platinum in a retail merchandising mix helps deliver consumer satisfaction. He describes how to end the “catch and release cycle” to build customer loyalty, as well as the benefits of presenting platinum to consumers, along with language to help illustrate the benefits.

“We are happy to launch this new series,” said Lawrence Hess, executive director of The Plumb Club. “Part of our organization’s mission is to positively impact the industry via education.

“These podcasts were designed to provide needed insights, information and tools that retailers

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.”
