Have tiaras in your jewelry store

It’s prom season and at its glittering, shimmering center is Tiara Day on May 24. Management consultant Kate Peterson advises sponsoring the prom queen. “That is the girl that every other girl wants to be, and she’s wearing a piece of jewelry that is going to become a requested piece of jewelry,” she says. “Beads are best because they are easiest to customize to the school. And you’ll get their parents’ business, too.”

  • May 3 National Two Different Colored Shoe Day … wear two different colored shoes and demonstrate the courage to take a risk and step outside your daily routine. 
  • May 10-14 Mark National Effectiveness Week by keeping a journal of everything you do. At each day’s end, assign a value to each action and evaluate the results. 
  • May 14 Toughest job in the world? Being a mom. Second toughest? Selecting a good Mother’s Day gift. Edit your selection tightly and offer what can be perceived as deeply thoughtful gifts.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
