Viva Las Vegas … Squad t-shirts … Cool coming

RANDOM THOUGHTS: because, after a hectic trip to Las Vegas and back, there’s little time for anything else.  

1.) As always, it was a thrill to see so many of Instore’s readers at the various Las Vegas shows we bounced between the entire week. I can’t tell you how much your enthusiasm for this magazine inspires us, and your ideas for story topics, stores to feature, services to talk about and new departments to launch can’t help but make us even better. 

2.) We signed up more than 100 new members for our ?Brain Squad? in Las Vegas. And we’re continuing to look for more … and, right now, anybody who signs up to receive our monthly email surveys as part of the ?Brain Squad? will receive a free (and completely awesome) t-shirt in either black or gray. Check out the pics on Page 65. These were extremely popular in Las Vegas ? you should have seen the look on all those manufacturers’ faces when we told them the shirts were reserved exclusively for ?Brain Squad? members. Heart-breaking.

3.) Next month, we’re excited to bring you what has become one of your favorite issues to read, and one of our favorites to put together ? Instore’s fourth annual ?America’s Coolest Stores? edition. The winners have already been chosen, and we’re putting together what we expect to be our best package of stores ever ? the state-of-the-cool in American jewelry retail. Enjoy the issue and see you next month!

Wishing you the very best business …

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.”
