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.

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
