The Jeweler’s Calendar Dates Losing Their Selling Power

IT’S NEVER BEEN easy to find Dad a Father’s Day gift he actually wants.

Sadly, fewer shoppers seem to be deciding it’s a watch or piece of jewelry.

That’s according to jewelers surveyed in our 2019 Big Survey, who listed Father’s Day along with Prom Season as the traditional selling dates that have lost the most appeal to shoppers.

Perhaps more alarming, was the No. 3 date on the list — Valentine’s Day, which was selected by 43 percent of the respondents as among the holidays losing their power to get shoppers in the door.

Please note that the Big Survey is still open and we are adding new responses as they come in. If you’re a jewelry-store owner or manager and would like to take the survey, it can be accessed here. Be quick, though; we’ll be closing it soon.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
