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 …

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
