Get Hallmark happy on laptop screen

Another holiday season of long hours, stretched staff and demanding customers looms in the not-too-distant future. As much as we all love this business, it can be hard sometimes to garner the necessary enthusiasm needed for this period. The answer? Grab the remote and veg out for a few hours to some dramas set in wholesome, snow-coated small towns where it doesn’t occur to anybody to say anything other than “Merry Christmas!” Yes, we’re talking about the Hallmark Channel. “It can help you to remember simple things first, love above all,” says one Brain Squad member, who adds that this routine is a key part of their mental preparation for the holiday season.

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.
