Singles Week, National Coffee Day, and More Important September Dates

And don’t miss this excuse for an end-of-summer bash.





11 One date looms large over September, and that’s the 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE 9/11 ATTACKS on America. See what worthy activities you can join in your local business community.

19 At 110 million strong, singles dwarf just about every other demographic out there. During SINGLES WEEK, brainstorm what you can do to tap this segment — arguably the biggest overlooked opportunity for jewelers.

22 “We had joy, we had fun, we had SEASONS IN THE SUN …” It’s been 40-odd years since that mawkish tune conquered the charts and lodged in the brains of a generation. Hum it as you prepare an end of summer bash to clear your cases for the upcoming bridal and holiday seasons.

29 There’s nothing quite like the aroma of coffee to make people slow down, linger and contemplate all that is good in life. On NATIONAL COFFEE DAY, team up with a gourmet coffee shop to do a tasting or a gift certificate promotion.

It’s Going to Set Us Up Very Nicely for Retirement

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
