The Jewelers of America/Jewelers’ Board of Trade Retail Jewelers Benchmarking Study deadline has been extended to Oct. 15.

JBT notes that it’s an opportunity to “participate and find out how your store measures up to top-performing retailers, and as a result, improve your bottom line.”

Participate and receive online performance analysis reports ($295 value) that reveal how your store’s profitability, productivity and financial performance compares to your competition and industry averages. You’ll get:

  • Benchmarking reports on store operations, staffing, sales data, merchandise by category, inventory and expenses.
  • Reporting on key performance indicators like gross profit, inventory turn, average unit sale, average transaction amount.
  • Dynamic filtering on data points (like location, store size, employee count) to compare information to your peers.

JBT states in a press release: “We seriously encourage you to take time to complete this survey because we believe it’s the most complete financial benchmarking report for retail jewelers that can help improve profitability. All information is reported in the aggregate and is held in strict confidence.”

Jeff Corey, owner of Day’s Fine Jewelers and a JBT board member, says: “Benchmarking shows not only what we’re really good at, but also where there’s room for improvement to help the bottom line. I’m thrilled that JBT has partnered with JA to produce this valuable tool and encourage all retailers to participate.”

This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
