Life’s a beach … Can work be one, too?

AFTER TWO ISSUES that you’d have been well-advised to wear a weightlifter’s belt while removing from the mailbox, we’re back down to a more manageable size this month. 

Despite the slimmer size, we’ve still got a lot of reading for you to do. Only this time, instead of reading for ideas, we’re asking you to read for fun. Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce our first-ever ?Summer Reading Edition.? So put away your Post-It notes and highlighters ? instead of tips, store profiles, polls and case studies, we’re packing this edition with the best jewelry-related fiction and non-fiction we could find.  

It’s an issue expressly designed for you to take to the beach or pool, slather on the sunscreen, crank up the iPod, and simply enjoy. (And if we ever do another one, maybe we’ll try a non-stain cover and even include a promotional Frisbee.) 

Though there’s not as much practical information as in a typical edition of INSTORE, we think we’re providing something equally valuable: a collection of very different tales that will help you feel, more strongly than ever before, the power of the amazing business we work in.  

Be sure to let us know your favorite piece. Was it the rude comedy of Dave Salkin’s ?The Young Salesman? (warning: stay away from this story if you’re easily offended), Guy De Maupassant’s classic ?The Necklace,? Josh Wimmer’s ?A Super Jeweler? ? a sly take on superheroes and the jewelry business ? or Marjorie Hart’s memoir of a long-ago season at America’s top jewelry store, ?Summer at Tiffany?? Enjoy!

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.
