IT’S A NEW YEAR, our fifth, and time for our annual redesign – which we’ve internally been calling INSTORE 5.0. 

It’s a process we take very seriously. Each year, we’re determined to get better – and not just a little better, but a lot. And we’re not afraid to tinker with the guts of what we do in an effort to keep things fresh and exciting for you.  

That’s exactly what we did this year – with some tweaks to our design, including a brand-new cover look and logo that better shows what Instore’s all about. And, of course, we’ve got loads of new content. Some highlights: 

  • In Crowd: Key retailers and industry members share their views on one of the month’s major news headlines. Their goal? To cut through the bull and show you how today’s major stories will effect you. 
  • Store Checklist: We go through the different features that make up “cool” stores, and look at how the country’s best retailers execute them. This month’s focus: children’s playrooms. 
  • In Focus: We take a different category of product that you might be considering buying for your store – give you advice on using it, and offer some examples of the most innovative products in that category. In this issue: name tags. 
  • In Season: Each month, we’ll provide you with product ideas for an upcoming holiday or sales season. For January: Valentine’s Day jewelry. 
  • There’s also an expanded quiz and puzzle page, new columns, and lots of other places where we’ve expanded and refined existing content.  

    I hope you enjoy INSTORE 5.0. (And next month’s INSTORE 5.1 and March’s INSTORE 5.2, etc.) Let’s hear what you think! 

    Wishing you the very best business …

    Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

    MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
