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 …

    Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

    When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
