Sales Truths: There is a New Customer In Town

WHY IT IS TRUE: Millennials — those born between 1982 and 2000 — make up the nation’s largest working population. Because they are glued to their smartphones and tablets, they are most likely to find you on Facebook, Twitter or your website.

PLAN OF ACTION: Since millennials are people-oriented rather than product-oriented, consider placing a romantic bridal engagement proposal story on your website and Facebook page. You will look different from anyone in your marketplace, while at the same time focusing your business on what it is really all about: romance and love. — David Richardson

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
