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.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
