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

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
