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

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
