Try a High-Value Easter Egg Hunt and More Activities for April




Easter Egg Hunt for diamond ring

Rick Antona of Uptown Diamond in Houston once organized “The World’s Most Expensive Easter Egg Hunt” — a Facebook-driven scramble for a gold-hinged egg with a $30,000 diamond ring inside, resulting in nationwide press. But even modest Easter promotions work well. JP Jewelers in St. Charles, IL, invited customers to choose a plastic egg with a random discount inside. “If they received only a 10 percent discount, we had them select another egg. They loved it,” said owner James Petterec.

Apr. 1  Generate great business with “April Fool’s Day Sale — It’s no joke! — 50 percent off all in-case merchandise.” (The best merchandise is, of course, kept safe and sound in the vault.)

Apr. 17  On National High Five Day, keep this Wired tip in mind: Don’t look at the hand. Keep your eye on the elbow; that’ll automatically line up your mitts.

Apr. 29  It’s our hunch National Arbor Day is going to get bigger the warmer our planet gets. Offer to plant a sapling for every purchase or repair booked.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Why This Fourth-Generation Jeweler Chose Wilkerson for a Very Special Sale

Parian & Sons of Franklin Lakes, NJ was founded in the early part of the 20th century. But even stores that have successfully made it through the Great Depression, a World War and the Woodstock Generation must come to an end. With no family wanting to continue the tradition, the time was right for Glenn Parian and his wife, Maria, to retire. And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
