THE BIG SURVEY 2017

We had two primary objectives with this year’s Big Survey: to gain fresh insights into what it means to be an American jeweler in 2017, and, given it’s been 10 years since our first such survey, to determine how far jewelers have traveled professionally since 2007. The findings were fascinating. In some areas, it’s as if time hadn’t moved, while in others the changes have been profound. We hope you enjoy the latest installment of this journey as much as we did assembling it.

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.
