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 …

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
