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.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
