St. Valenswine’s Day Advice, National Time Management Day and More Important February Dates

Four million. That’s how many people are expected to announce their engagement on Feb. 14. 38 to 53 million. That’s how many men in the U.S. have cheated on their wives, according to InfidelityAdvice.com. And it’s on Feb. 13 — a.k.a. St. Valenswine’s Day — that they celebrate their illicit joy. Have proposal ideas ready for the former. As for the latter, be discreet and keep an eye out for those splashier purchases men invariably make for their mistresses.

Feb. 01  February is National Time Management Month. To honor the occasion, pick five things each day that really need to get done and then eliminate the bottom two. Then do them.

Feb. 02  Today marks 15 years since the first National Wear Red Day to raise awareness about the No. 1 killer of women in the US, heart disease. Get involved in a community activity or host your own red-themed party. 

Feb. 12  The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show gets under way at Madison Square Garden, the perfect peg for a “pupperware” party. Get in some matching owner-hound jewelry — it’s an explosive market.

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.”
