An interview with the owner of Wilkins
‘When we lost Rolex from the Isle of Man and Blackpool, the sale of the business fell through. We had a closing down sale [at the Isle of Man store]. It was brilliant. We did £170k on the first day, £270k on the second. Karl Massey helped with that sale, supporting us with organisation and marketing. His team was fabulous, we had people queueing around the block.
With the proceeds of that closing down sale, we had a fresh start in Blackpool with Gabrielle in charge of the business. We knew it was going to be tough without Rolex, but we knew we could make it work. Now, 12 months down the line, things have fallen into place.’
