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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
