For jewelers, the next few weeks present an opportunity to put your best foot forward and create long-lasting friendships, says marketing specialist Jimmy DeGroot.

In the video below, he outlines a few key steps to get reader for the rush.

For starters, make sure your store is in ship shape physically.

“Display your jewelry so that men in particular can see a few price points,” he says, adding later: “Know your hot items.  Know what’s popular nationally, What are the chains promoting? Turn on the TV and you’ll see stackable bezel-set rings, two stone rings, and diamonds by the yard.”

It’s also important to let your team know you support them, to make sure your website and social media are updated and to create a fun atmosphere.

“Let’s be that place that shows our customers that they came to the perfect place to celebrate this wonderful moment in their lives,” DeGroot says.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
