Is Retail DeadDespite recent reports by CBS News that retailers have closed 7,000 stores in the first half of 2019 and are projected to close 12,000 stores by year-end, the death of retailing is greatly exaggerated.

There is no more powerful selling environment than the retail store. It is the only place a salesperson can interact with a customer using all 5 senses: seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting and feeling. This can’t be done on a computer screen.

Like politics, all retailing is local. The retail store is a social venue where people meet and interact. The best retailers see themselves more as entertainers and less as distributors of products. They attract customers by making their stores an exciting and entertaining place to be.

Large chain retailers have spent years consolidating the roles of purchasing and distribution of products to individual stores. They manage the business with data. Expenses have been reduced by paying store managers less and relying more on centralized management. The problem here is the lack of personal contact with customers and understanding of what the local customer wants. Most reported store closings are from large retail chains.

Key to Small Retail Survival

Studies have revealed the keys to small retail survival and prosperity are the sale of very high-quality products, an extraordinary level of service and selling to a narrowly defined market niche. Successful small retailers know their customers very well and they know how to buy for these customers. They often stock a level of quality merchandise that exceeds that found in local chain stores and they provide personal service.

When it is time to close a retail business, owners shouldn’t take it upon themselves to do it alone. There are all sorts of reasons for closing – a retirement, wanting to take a step in a different direction, or simply that the economy is not working in that business’s favor.

Sure, you could try to sell it as a whole, or have your own going-out-of-business sale with leftover inventory and far less earning potential that could be obtained. Wouldn’t it be better to just call in the professionals?

How can a sale of any type do this much for your store? Before I go into any more detail on just how our sales work, you need to hear from some other retailers, with stores like yours, who were just as skeptical as you are, before they saw the results.

“Never before have we had lines of customers waiting to get into our store! This did not just happen on the first day of the sale but multiple times throughout the event.”~G.A. Wright Client – Linda Bohannon

“By concentrating traffic on specific days and/or times, I saw how the theory of creating a buying frenzy was very effective in developing that sense of urgency with my customers.”~G.A. Wright Client – Stacy Connart

Opening a jewelry store is a bright and exciting time. Closing one, well, not so much. But it could be!

Let’s face it, no one plans on going out of business, but everyone, at some point, does. Whether it is time to retire, the economy has gone bad, or it’s just time to move on to something else, it is time for your jewelry store liquidation sale.

You’ll Need Help

Just because you have been in the jewelry business for years, doesn’t mean you know how to liquidate your store. Sure, you know your customers and have had some sales perhaps around the holidays, but a closeout is a whole different ball of wax.

This is what GA Wright does best. While each of our team members has years of experience in the retail world, they’ve also gleaned the expertise needed for inventory reductions and liquidations. That’s what we do and have been doing for years. We also have specific experience in the jewelry field.

Our liquidation process maximizes the owner’s profit line and return. Our jewelry store closeouts feature high impact sale promotional events combining several key components. Our consultant will take the time to learn your inventory line by line, and will also conduct a marketing analysis specialized to your area. We assist with direct marketing coupled with online and more traditional advertising offering sales promotions and events.

GA Wright Offers the Best Results in Jewelry Liquidations

Your GA Wright jewelry liquidation consultant stays with you every step of the way. You can expect the line of customers waiting to get into your store to start early on the opening day of your liquidation sale. Our process motivates buyers. You’ll see your regulars, old customers you may have forgotten, and many new ones. And, we’ll bring them back in time and time again with repeat visits throughout the life of your liquidation sale.

Why? Because while some of the “bargains” keep getting better, they will also remember something that caught their eye and should have paid more attention to the last time they were there. They’ll return quickly in hopes they get there before something is gone, for good!

G.A. Wright integrates top advertising design with promotional advertising, as well as point-of-sale materials. We may even offer a frequent shopper program. We’ll help with merchandising, store operations, and sales. We’ll discuss everything we wish to do with you every step of the way.

When to Liquidate?

Springtime is a great time for liquidation. It’s a time of year most people are home and not traveling, and there’s something about coming out of the winter doldrums when blossoms abound that inspires and allows for jewelry shopping. Sure, Valentine’s Day is over, but Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are coming.

Being in the jewelry store business, you have come to know most people shop for jewelry for other people, but springtime is the one time most people allow themselves the pleasure of accessorizing their own wardrobe as well.

The Liquidation Itself

With GA Wright’s help, our clients have told us they saw more people walk through the door on the first day of the sale then they sometimes have seen in a month. Sales during the first day, week, or month generally equal longer timeframes even during the holiday season. There’s a reason GA Wright’s clients recommend us to others for inventory reduction sales, retirement sales, and liquidation sales. We are good at what we do, and we aren’t ashamed to promote it.

If you are thinking of liquidating your jewelry store, or any other type of retail store, contact GA Wright. We’ll discuss your needs and match up one of our top-notch consultants with you. You’ll be under no obligation, but we think you’ll want our help. GA Wright operates out of Denver, but our consultants travel throughout the U.S. and Canada. We’ll even travel to other countries depending upon a client’s needs and our ability to help. Fill out our submission form and let us get you started on the right track for your liquidation.

Bobbi Orris became a Retail Sales Promotion Consultant 25 years ago. She’s been doing work for our clients ever since. Last year she told me a story you might like.

Bobbi went through our new consultant orientation in 1993. She was convinced my program wouldn’t work. But, she needed a job and we offered her one. So … she worked for a dance store … then a bridal store… then a department store … then on and on. She was bringing in big crowds of shoppers and huge sales for our client’s stores. … Even she was amazed! Problem was … she still didn’t know why it worked! Then one day she was in Mall of America looking down on the amusement park … watching crowds of customers in stores. All of a sudden it dawned on her. We attracted shoppers because we made shopping fun … fun for customers, fun for employees and fun for store owners. Didn’t make any difference whether we were doing a grand opening, stock reduction or a store closing. It was always fun. The shoppers came in droves and the stores minted money.

Once she figured out why it worked, she really got excited. Started creating her own Special Events.
More stuff to make it fun for shoppers. She became our Queen of Special Events. No! … You can’t have her in your store. She’s too busy with our clients.

But, you can have some of her Special Events for FREE! I’ve chosen a NEW and Expanded List of the best and I’ll send them to you with all the directions you need to make them work in your store.
