Retailers Rate the Show: ‘Amazing’, ‘Insane’, ‘Intense’

A gallery of retailer reactions to the education program at this year’s SMART Show:

“This is the best educational venue in the business, bar none.”

– Jim Tuttle of Green Lake Jewelry Works in Seattle, WA

“Intense immersion sessions in marketing, education and bench skills for beginners or advanced industry professionals designed to reinforce basics, instilling a certain flavor of business common sense and evoking widespread brainstorming. [The show leaves] you with a renewed sense of purpose, easily implemented ideas and access to fashionable “smart” stock to replenish your war chest so you can blow away the competition!”

– Denise Oros of Linnea Jewelers in LaGrange, IL

“The vibe at this show is different than other shows. The pace is different. I find it invigorating.”

– Brett Weiler of Decatur City Jewelers in Decatur, GA

“An incredible learning experience filled with tips and tricks that we should be doing every day. Find out who our demographic is, find out how to market to them, and [learning how to] brand your own store was huge as well. So excited to implement!”

– Katie Taylor of Taylor’s Jewellers in Alliston, Ontario, Canada

“If you’re not at the SMART Show, you’re missing out! I received more valuable information in a short time period than any other industry show.”

– Beth Schmitz of Beth Schmitz Consulting in Austin, TX

Thinking of Retirement? This Jeweler Went for the Company That Shares His Values

Richard Frank of Goldstein’s Jewelry in Mobile, Ala., had worked in his family’s store since he was 13-years old. As its owner, he was proud to be at the helm of Mobile’s oldest jewelry store, an AGS, IJO and RJO member business. But there comes a time in every jeweler’s life when a decision must be made regarding the future. And for Frank, that meant turning the store over to new owners. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale, a decision, he says, made a long time ago. “Their reputation is such that all the things we value are what they value,” he says. And the results surpassed Frank’s own expectations. Would he recommend Wilkerson for other jewelers who are considering a going-out-of-business or retirement sale? “If you’re contemplating a sale to maximize the return on your business, there is no one else in the industry that I could even think of recommending.”
