The Hammock in the Loft … and More Jeweler Habits

For a decade’s worth of Januarys, we’ve kept you focused on your habits.

Beginning positive ones, performing them consistently, and making them a part of your routine forever. Identifying bad ones, eliminating them, and never again lapsing.

Over the years, we’ve kicked off fresh-slate season with “Life Lifts”, business resolutions, even more business resolutions, and something very, very different.

In this January’s edition of INSTORE, we come at habits from a different angle — asking a few dozen of our favorite jewelers what habits are helping them achieve success, and what habits may be keeping them from it.

The story is inspirational and informational. Not to mention funny, as when Chuck Kuba of Iowa Diamonds discusses his favorite habit (“I am notorious for not giving up. It took me 24 years to finally get my undergraduate degree”) or when Brett Weiler’s mentions his least (“I have a loft in the back of my store. And in that loft, I have a hammock. You can see where this is going. I have gotten over the guilty feeling of taking a nap at work.”)

Wilkerson Testimonials | MSG Jewelers

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
