LAFAYETTE, LA – Stuller is temporally closing its global headquarters in Lafayette, LA, due to the recent developments regarding coronavirus within the state.

Starting Monday, March 23, at 5 p.m. CDT, the manufacturer is suspending all on-site operations in accordance with the Louisiana governor’s mandatory policy through Sunday, April 12. Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards announced the stay-at-home order after the state topped 1,100 cases.

“It is difficult for us to be unable to fully serve our customers during this time,” said Danny Clark, president of the company. “Our long-term relationship with each customer is our most precious asset. We will stand tall at this moment and do the right thing for our country, our state, our industry, and our employees and with anticipation look forward to the day when we can serve the industry once again.”

At this time, Stuller “is committed to servicing all of their customers’ urgent needs through the phone and live chat,” according to a press release from the manufacturer. A limited staff of customer care associates is available from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Central for general questions.

“Ultimately, we believe temporarily suspending operations in our Lafayette facility is the right thing to do for our coworkers, our communities, and our country,” said Matt Stuller, CEO and founder. “We are committed to resuming normal business operations as soon as the ‘stay at home’ order is lifted. We thank you for your understanding during this difficult time for all.”

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.”
