New report from Bain & Co. expects modest luxury market growth this year.

The global luxury goods sector is getting “boosted by resurgent demand from the United States and China,” prompting Bain & Co. to forecast a 1 percent growth in luxury sales, according to a new report from the consultancy which is cited by Reuters. According to the article, the Bain report says that U.S. customers are adopting a wait-and-see attitude as the presidential election nears, meaning demand is expected to pick up after that point.

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.”
