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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Is It Your Time to Enjoy Life? Wilkerson Can Get You There.

Mary and Tim Whalen, owners of Crown Jewelers in Pittsfield, Mass., wanted to enjoy life beyond their business. When they decided to retire and close shop, they asked Wilkerson to handle the sale. As long-time Wilkerson customers, Mary says she knew the company could manage all the details of the liquidation. It was also great to have “fresh eyes” on their business, says Mary, which “worked tremendously for us.” Today, the Whalens are beginning a new adventure but are quick to commend Wilkerson for helping them get there. “You have one chance to get it right,” she says about their retirement sale. “Do it right.”
