A little extra content never hurt anyone

WHEW! WHEW! WHEWWWWWW!

If you couldn’t tell already ? from the delirious gibberish that sometimes appears in this space ? I usually write these notes at the end of producing each issue of INSTORE. It seems like the best time to do it ? the issue, its strengths, its weaknesses, its talking points, and its geez-hope-they-don’t-notice-thats are all clear in my head and easily identifiable in a police lineup. 

This month, I’m feeling even loopier than usual, as we finish the second of our back-to-back, biggest-ever issues. Like most editors, I love big books. There are a lot of extra ads, sure, but there’s also the challenge of providing extra-special, supersized content to make certain that, as always, you read INSTORE from the first page to the very last.  

And I’ve got a really good feeling about this issue ? there’s a lot you’ll find useful, plus a few things that I think could truly change the face of your business. 

Think of it as our present to you. Because without your support, enthusiasm, and the power of your collective voices, big issues like this wouldn’t be possible.

We’ve been wiping the floor with other magazines (sorry, other magazines!) in reader surveys for the past four years. Advertisers hear the buzz. They see the surveys. And cagey ones who don’t believe reader polls simply go out and do their own. Then they believe. That makes sales easier, and issues bigger … and bigger. 

So enjoy this monster edition ? though it might take twice as long to read it, we’re confident that the extra time will pay off in your business. 

Wishing you the very best business…

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.
