“Alliterate or die!” That was a poster a former colleague saw pasted to a newsroom wall. Alliteration’s power to make words stick owes itself to the repetition of sounds. It’s something a lot of jewelers already know, hence “Wine Wednesdays” at Erik Runyan Jewelers in Vancouver, WA, or “Free Cleaning Friday” and “Saturday Style” at Fakier Jewelers in Houma, LA. Manic Mondays, Too Good to be True Tuesdays, Fried Food Fridays … once you get started using alliteration to jazz up your work week, it’s really hard to stop.

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
