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.

When Liquidation Is the Best Option, This Legendary Jeweler Chose Wilkerson

George Koueiter & Sons Jewelers, a 65-year old jewelry institution in Grosse Pointe, MI, had always been a mainstay in this suburban Detroit community. But when owners George and Paul Koueiter were ready to retire, they made the decision to close rather than sell. “We decided our best option to do the liquidation sale was Wilkerson,” says Paul Koueiter. The results, says George Koueiter, exceeded expectations and the process was easy. “Wilkerson just kept us in mind,” says George. “They never did anything without asking and whatever they asked us to do was just spot on.”
