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 …

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
