Video: Jeweler Wages ‘Sign War’ with Chik-fil-A

The owners of the businesses say it’s all in fun.




A jeweler in Gardendale, AL, is engaged in a “sign war” with a nearby Chick-fil-A restaurant, CBS 42 reports.

Jeff Dennis Jewelers started the battle as a way to market its new drive-thru.

“I just put on there that our drive-thru is faster than Chick-fil-A’s and that’s what started it,” said Jeff Dennis, owner of Jeff Dennis Jewelers.

The two businesses then traded several barbs. For example, Chick-fil-A posted: “Overflow parking at Jeff Dennis Jewelers!”

Owners of the businesses say the “war” is all in fun and they’re enjoying the community response.

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.”
