White Pine Trading Expands Consumer Buy-Back Program




It will be available nationwide.

(Press Release) NEW YORK – White Pine Trading LLC has announced the expansion of its Consumer Buy-Back Program.

Under this expansion, the program will now be available to retailers nationwide. In addition, the company has streamlined how retailers can purchase diamonds, jewelry and luxury watches from their customers, eliminating contracts and creating a simple online submission process.

Andrew Brown, president and CFO of White Pine, said, “Our improved Consumer Buy-Back Program now offers a simple, yet powerful way for jewelers across the country to provide an invaluable service to their customers, while generating new business (through store credit) and a sales commission for themselves. We are confident that this revamped program will help increase customer relationships for participating partners and make the program more accessible to retailers across the country.”

The program works as follows:

  • Retailers fill out a dedicated form at, providing their store’s contact information, the customer’s contact information and details on the item(s) being sold along with an insurance value.
  • Once the form is submitted, a free and fully insured FedEx shipping label will be automatically emailed so the item(s) can be sent to WP Diamonds’ headquarters for delivery the next day. Once at WP Diamonds’ headquarters, the item(s) will be assessed and valued.
  • WP Diamonds will then submit an offer to the retailer using real-time industry pricing. If the offer is accepted, WP Diamonds will send a check to the store. If the offer is declined , WP Diamonds returns the item to the store free of charge.
  • In exchange for the service, the retailer receives a commission of 10 percent of the purchase price.

As part of the program, White Pine will donate $20 to Jewelers for Children for every transaction made through the new program.

To encourage participation and kick off the national launch, White Pine will be running a Summer Send-In Competition. The retailer who earns the greatest value of purchased send-ins between July 1, 2017, and Aug. 31, 2017, will win a diamond and ruby by the yard necklace (with an estimated $1,000 value).

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.”
