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

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
