Plumb Club’s June Podcasts Provide Retailers with Deeper Product Knowledge

(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK – The Plumb Club’s June podcasts from jewelry industry experts focus on giving retailers a better understanding of how their products are priced by their vendors and how products can be secured either via construction and attachments, or insurance.

Do You Know What Goes into Your Product Wholesale Price?: Ever wonder how your suppliers arrive at the price they charge you? Corinna Bhasin provides insight into the various costs and elements that make up a product wholesale price. She discusses bills of materials and how changing markets and commodities can affect the price and value of a piece resulting in differing prices during the lifespan of a style. Corinna Bhasin is the Vice President of F.D. Worldwide Merchandise Group. A merchandising and manufacturing house for fine jewelry since 1994.

Jewelry Security and Maintenance for Investment Jewelry: For many consumers, securing and maintaining their jewelry investment is paramount. Ralph Quackenbush discusses the various options for securing an item, such as the items’ construction and attachments. Further, he talks about how to insure an item and opportunities a retailer has to further engage a customer after the purchase in order to keep themselves in top of mind. Ralph Quackenbush is a senior sales representative for W.R. Cobb Company, a full-service manufacturer, providing solutions to retailers.

The Plumb Club podcasts, which are added monthly, provide strategies, knowledge and immediately actionable steps from industry leaders, that help retailers across a variety of business areas.

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.”
