Want to either cut down on your store hours, or, conversely, expand them? Allotting a day for appointment-only may hold the answer. In the case of the first, close your doors to the general public on one of the days you’re currently open and allow in only those customers who have an appointment. In the case of the second option, open for appointment only on one of the days you normally close (say Sunday or Monday) – you won’t need as many people, but these are customers who have shown a real intent to make a significant purchase.

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.”
