Oct 1. Nordstrom offers in-store mammograms, Borsheims gives away pink tea, and the NFL delivers the sight of 300-pound linemen adorned in pink bootlaces. Breast Cancer Awareness month is a great opportunity for any civic-minded business to get involved in a worthy cause and raise its community profile. Jems Jewels & Gold in North Wales, PA, once raffled off a pink scooter. “People still come in talking about it four years later,” says owner Scott Kelly. This October, what will you be doing?

  • Oct. 1 On the 85th anniversary of Babe Ruth’s “Called Shot” in the 1932 World Series, set an audacious and very public goal for this holiday season. (Then quickly get to work to make it happen.)
  • Oct. 18 Celebrate Sweet Day with “Sweet Deals for Sweet Deeds.” Invite your customers to “Do something sweet for someone.”
  • Oct. 29 For National Cat Day, get in touch with your local cat shelter to see if you can do something together to help promote the event.

Wilkerson Testimonials

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.”
