You’ll Wonder Why You’ve Never Carried This Expansion Category

Here’s a sneak peek from our Vegas Buying Guide.

Offering your customers a selection of jewelry storage options alongside your regular merchandise gives you the potential for some great add-on sales.

It also provides window shoppers a solid reason to come into your store even on days when they’re not intending to buy jewelry.

With the Vegas shows fast approaching, our style expert, Becky Stone, sees jewelery storage as a strong expansion category, and many of our Brain Squad members agree. 

“We carry them, and they’re a good add-on sale,” says Stacey S. Sachs of Solomon’s Fine Jewelry & Watch in Albertson, NY.

“Definitely interested; would like suggestions on vendors for this product,” says Barb Binkley of Cooper & Binkley Jewelers in Brighton, MI.

Among 226 storeowners and managers we recently surveyed, 30 percent said they plan to stock jewelry storage options for the holidays.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
