True Tales: Father Doesn’t Always Know Best

Published

on

Dad decided to try a new setting technique when resetting Mom’s engagement diamond. Well, she noticed it missing out of the setting not long after she got the ring back. Devastated, my mother finished making dinner and to her surprise she found her diamond … baked right into the cheese on the top of the lasagna. Thank goodness, Mom was the only one whose diamond was set that way and needless to say that technique was never used again! But it doesn’t mean family members won’t still be the guinea pigs for new ideas, luckily the rest of them have been great successes!

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.”
