Have your say as a member of our “Show Squad.”

 

By now, you’ve probably heard that we at INSTORE are planning a trade show, to be called THE INSTORE SHOW. Our event will be held at Chicago’s amazing Navy Pier (you gotta Google it) from April 19 to 21, 2009. 
 
Like our magazine, the goal of THE INSTORE SHOW is simple.?To benefit American jewelers in ways immediately and directly tangible. To cut out the fluff and get everyone focused on ways to make money. THE INSTORE SHOW?will do that by putting an active emphasis on helping you … 
 
1. Pick the right products for your store.  
2. Find the best ways to sell those products.  
3. Explore new categories of products and services that can help you profit.  
 
And, hopefully, you’ll have a really good time doing it.  
 
As we put together plans to create this exciting, ambitious and really spectacularly daunting event, I’m relying on a group of people I know and trust: 
 
You.  
 
I’d like to extend an invitation to you to join our new trade-show panel — the “Show Squad.” About every six weeks, you’ll receive a survey asking about various issues involved in organizing a trade show, ranging from the really big — education programs, what you look for in a vendor — to the slightly less big — food, entertainment, and even that always contentious issue, the thickness of show carpets (or lack thereof). 
 
Since our goals are to serve you, your feedback is essential. Ready and eager to help? E-mail me today. 
 
Wishing you the very best business …

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.
