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!

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
