It’s set for mid-May.

(PRESS RELEASE) OAK BROOK, IL — Investing in your business means more than just new inventory or carpets. Investing in your employees shows them that they are an integral part of your business and encourages them to invest personally in your store. In mid-May, RJO members will be doing just that. A group of employees, managers, owners and future-owners of RJO stores will learn these human resource techniques and more at RJO’s Next Generation weekend.

The speakers at the event include facilitator Kate Peterson of Performance Concepts, Andrew Rickard of RDI, and Craig MacBean of Ostbye. Here, attendees will participate in roundtable discussions, listen to speakers and weigh the options for what-if scenarios. Past attendees stress that the networking that took place at Next Gen will stay with them for years to come.

Joe Schiavone of Z’s Fine Jewelry in Peoria, AZ, says, “Networking is amazing. I walked away with a group of friends that I will be forever connected with to help grow our business. It doesn’t matter whether you are ready to transition your business to the next generation or just have a younger group of individuals in the store your store will be better from this event.”

The next RJO Next Generation Experience is made possible by sponsorship from RDI Diamonds, Ostbye, Stuller, Rarest Rainbow and Federated Insurance. For more information, visit www.rjomembers.com or check out RJO on Facebook.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
