This Year, It’s Time to Emphasize Small Business Saturday … Plus More November Events

Once the preserve of big box retailers, the last week of November now offers something for everyone: Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Mobile Wednesday, even a Weed Wednesday for those who find all that family time a little too much. But for jewelers, it’s Small Business Saturday that deserves the thickest red circle in your calendar. This year, get serious. Hold a class, trunk show or wine tasting that underscores the personal touch you bring to retail in your community.

  • Nov. 1 Prep your red ribbon bracelets and blue circle earrings. November is National AIDS Awareness MontH and National Diabetes Month. Ask around to see if there is a role you can play in a related community event.
  • Nov. 11 Singles Day has become the world’s largest retail sales day. Celebrate the unattached lifestyle (“Yes, go ahead and buy those earrings for yourself!”).
  • Nov. 30 On Computer Security Day, review your passwords. And if you’re using the same password as you use for social sites — change it!

Wilkerson Testimonials

Is It Your Time to Enjoy Life? Wilkerson Can Get You There.

Mary and Tim Whalen, owners of Crown Jewelers in Pittsfield, Mass., wanted to enjoy life beyond their business. When they decided to retire and close shop, they asked Wilkerson to handle the sale. As long-time Wilkerson customers, Mary says she knew the company could manage all the details of the liquidation. It was also great to have “fresh eyes” on their business, says Mary, which “worked tremendously for us.” Today, the Whalens are beginning a new adventure but are quick to commend Wilkerson for helping them get there. “You have one chance to get it right,” she says about their retirement sale. “Do it right.”
