Edge Retail Academy Announces Watch Market Share Report

(PRESS RELEASE) OMAHA, NE — The Edge Retail Academy (ERA), the leading jewelry industry advisory company, launched The Watch Market Share Report, which shows manufacturers their Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) including market share and those of their competitors.

Edge Retail Academy has over 1100 retail stores contributing sales and inventory data to its Edge and Vendor Pulse programs. The aggregated data of these doors exceeds $2 billion in annual sales.

“Watch makers, like manufacturers in all jewelry categories, are very interested in their sales, sell-through and market share statistics,” said Sherry Smith, director of Business Development, ERA. “Our Report is able to aggregate the data across hundreds of stores and present this actionable data in one report.”

The Watch Market Share Report is part of Vendor Pulse in which vendors can subscribe to their aggregated data to better understand sell-through data and inventory levels.

Vendors participating in the Vendor Pulse program include DeBeers, NPD, Hearts of Fire, Memoire, Gabriel, Ashi, and Pandora, among others.

“Vendor Pulse has been a great way for us to see how we are performing at retail. This gives us the opportunity to engage our retail-partners in ways that help our business and theirs, based on real-time data and a mutual desire to drive turn and inventory efficiency,” said Peter Smith, President of Mémoire.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
