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

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.
