The Green Bull Fine Jewelry Couture -Judges Comments

Published

Clifford Pugh: I like the old-world charm of this reconverted 110-year-old livery stable, especially the "cave stone" walls and stone and brick archway. With a coffee and beverage bar, stone fireplace and live music on the weekends, the Green Bull looks like a great place to hang out.
 
Tim Malone: This store redefines the use of texture to create a totally unique shopping experience. The use of rustic materials is a powerful visual juxtaposition of jewelry display.

Penny Preville: When I first saw the pictures of The Green Bull, I really did feel like I was looking at a bygone era. The many vintage design elements, and the use of the stone and brick from the original structure that stood 110 years ago preserves the town’s heritage. These are some of the things that makes this store cool.

Michael Whiston: The western traditions and history of the area are important to the story and retail experience The Green Bull wants to show its customer. The iron doors, stone walls and concrete floors create a unique shopping experience perfect for those looking to interested in the traditions of the Old West.

Steve Samaras: Talk about a store making its patrons feel comfortable. It’s rustic and wine-cellar-like interior provides the customer an experience atypical of a stuffy jewelry store.

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.”
