Get Ideas From the Best of the Best

We’ve been working hard on providing you with new stuff each day on INSTOREMAG.COM in our Daily Shine section (featuring Shine Times, Shine Blogs, Shine News and Shine on Design).

But, behind the scenes, we’ve also been working on the old stuff, trying to get our archives back in shape after a disastrous transition a few years back that resulted in a lot of lost material. That process is still ongoing, but there are a number of key sections of INSTORE magazine that are (more or less) complete and ready for your visits.

To start, go to the INSTORE archives main page, where you can read content from individual issues going back to September 2002.

Then peruse the collected works of columnists like Shane Decker, David Geller and David Brown. If you’re looking for good ideas, don’t forget to go through our Ask INSTORE and Book Reviews archives. One newer, can’t-miss area of the site is our Sanity Files department — where you can see the collected installments of what I honestly think is one of the coolest magazine departments ever.

All that said, if I were a jewelry retailer looking for inspiration, the place I would start is right here — our “Best of the Best” archives page, with more than 80 successful promotions from jewelers. Dive in!

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
