Show Starters



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: 
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

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
