FOR A JEWELER, Kyle Bullock is a heck of a writer. (Or is it that, for a writer, Kyle Bullock is a heck of a jeweler?)

Whatever the case, we’re sure you’ll enjoy Kyle’s latest literary effort — a jewelry store-themed take on the classic holiday poem, “The Night Before Christmas”.

In this version of the story, a jewelry store gets ready for a big sales day on the most important day of the year. And, as this minute-plus excerpt indicates, things have gotten off to a really bad start.

Listen to the excerpt above, or the full podcast below.

It Was Hawaii Day at Gene the Jeweler’s Store … Or Was It?

In this episode of Jimmy DeGroot’s satirical Gene the Jeweler series, Gene learns that it was Hawaii Day at his store. At least that’s what his employee, Jeremy, says. But Jeremy’s answers aren’t quite adding up. It’s hard to say what this “Hawaii Day” was really all about.

IN THIS SPECIAL HOLIDAY wrap-up episode of Over-the-Counter, Kyle tells the story of a woman whose father brought her a merry Christmas surprise by paying off an item that she hadn’t quite paid off on layaway. He also tells of a small watch repair service, provided for free, that provided a meaningful lesson for a young boy and an unexpected reward for a generous jeweler, as well as the most memorable holiday sale that took place in Kyle’s own store — an $80 gold rose to an extremely special couple.

Says Kyle: “No matter what stage of the business you’re in, we all have the power to take in these simple, subtle, quiet moments that change people’s lives. We are privy to people’s most important and cherished moments and memories, which is what makes this the greatest business to be in.”

LOTS OF PEOPLE like to dump on millennials, says Alexis Padis, director of operations for San Francisco’s Padis Jewelry as well as her family’s California wine label, Padis Vineyards, and a millennial herself. But she doesn’t understand why.

Said Padis, in her recent visit to INSTORE’s new podcast, The Barb Wire: “What do millennials want that we don’t all want? We all want excellent customer service. We all want product available. We want to try on things. We want to see them in person. We want to see, touch, feel and we want a good deal. Everything the millennials get that bad rap for is something we all ultimately want.”

In the short highlight above, listen to Alexis explain the one main reason why she enjoys millennials’ bad reputation. Or check out the entire podcast below.
