Podcast Highlight: Millennial Jeweler Wonders Why Her Age Group Gets a Bad Rap, and Explains Why It’s Okay With Her

There’s one way in which she actually enjoys millennials’ bad reputation.





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.

A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic? Wilkerson Showed Them the Way

For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.”
