Podcast Highlight: Aleah Arundale Rants About One Mistake Way Too Many Jewelers Make

It’s an old habit that many jewelers are having a hard time giving up.





IN THIS EXCERPT from the latest episode of JimmyCast, Aleah Arundale, the founder of Jewelers Helping Jewelers, shares one of her pet peeves about jewelers — why so few put visible prices in their showcases.

This episode is brought to you by INSTORE Bulletins.

Arundale wonders why some jewelers are so slow at moving away from traditional sales habits. “This is insanity to me,” Aleah rants. “We’re making our customers feel embarrassed, we’re making them feel uncomfortable. Guys are already uncomfortable going into a jewelry store! You want to empower them. Even if you put a price range, I get it … you don’t want to just smack a sticker on it. But first of all, Tiffany’s is doing this, by the way … And if they can do it, you certainly can find a classy way to do it.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

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.”
