Vacation Issue

Published

on

The magazine you hold in your hands could be your first step toward a summer vacation.

 

Every year in July, instore kicks things down a notch with our Summer Reading Issue. Over the years, we’ve developed something of a pattern — one year, we’ll do a big “True Tales” special; other years (like this one), we present you with a package of the best industry-related fiction and literary non-fiction we can come up with.

The idea is that this is an edition that you will take to the beach, sprinkle with sand, spill suntan oil onto, splash with seawater. By the time you get home, this issue should be twice its original size.

Read. Relax. Have fun.

Fact is, the favorite books we own are not leatherbound first editions with gilt pages and silk moire endpapers. The ones we love most have somebody’s phone number on the cover, an old telephone bill stuck inside as a bookmark, notes climbing up, down and around the margins, and a giant mustard stain gluing two pages together.

Let this be that issue for you. Let this one be a vacation.

Speaking of vacations, be sure to set aside time for a real vacation this month or next. You deserve it. More than that, you need it.

Take one week. Let the minions run the store. (To all the minions reading this, we call you that because we love you.) Trust us, they can do the job. And the more they do it, the better they’ll get.

Wishing you the very best business …

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.
