Take our poll.

The challenges in retail have come from several different directions over the past few years.

Bricks-and-mortar stores are competing not only with each other and with e-commerce upstarts, but also, in come cases, with their own suppliers who have begun selling directly to consumers online. 

Millennials have their own shopping behaviors that can be puzzling.

And of course, there’s the age-old problem of finding the right people to work in your business.

But remember, although certain issues are new, the fact is that retail has always been a tough business. It takes strength and creativity to survive and thrive.

Still, we’d like to know what you find most frustrating about the brick-and-mortar retail scene of today.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
