Saturday Night Live: Holiday Jewelry from Pandora

This faux commercial, which aired on Saturday Night Live in December 2017, is a pretty brutal takedown of the charm giants. As the narrator intones, “Once you’ve bought her a Pandora bracelet, you can buy her one of these 60-dollar whatevers for every birthday, Mother’s Day and anniversary for the rest of her natural life”, the commercial shows a jewelry-box perspective view of a series of thorougly unexcited women opening their holiday gifts. Ouch.

As the famous advertisement says, “Diamonds are forever”. But this guy finds himself in hot water with his girlfriend when he suggests another substance that is “forever”.

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.”
