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.

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.
