To-Do List

I loved the last issue! After I finished reading it, I wrote down 25 things to follow up, consider, or inquire about. You are a true gem and we couldn’t live without your “out of the box” information! — Susan Eisen, Susan Eisen Fine Jewelry & Watches, El Paso, TX

Your Thoughts On “If I Owned a Jewelry Store” 

  • I thought it was great. Many of the best ideas we’ve had came from those outside the industry who could assuredly see the forest clearly. — J. Dennis Petimezas, Watchmaker’s Diamonds & Jewelry, Johnstown, PA
  • Some ideas these folks throw out are worth noting and others are better off in the trash. I don’t think you can walk the walk or talk the talk until you’ve worked jewelry retail for a substantial amount of time. — Marc Majors, Sam L. Majors, Midland, TX

Pulp Fiction

  • I love INSTORE. It used to put a smile on my face, but lately I feel like it’s a fictional magazine since what I experience every day in my store tells me a different reality. After 32 years in retail and 37 years as a bench jeweler, I’ve never been soooo disappointed in my career. — Saro Abrahamian, Town Jewelers, Chevy Chase, MD

Feel the Love

  • Retailers are just loving how manufacturers are selling on the net. Warm feelings all over the place — you might want to capture the love and share it. — Cliff Yankovich, Chimera Design, Lowell, MI

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
