It’s a way to ‘level the playing field,’ company says.

(Press Release) SHELTON, CT — Abbott Jewelry Systems, creator of The Edge retail jewelry management system, has added jewelry care protection plans to its software, providing independent retail jewelers the same sales advantage as the majors.

Independent jewelers can now offer jewelry care protection plans for their customers’ peace of mind, in addition to helping them close sales at the counter. The plans offered are available through industry insurance leader JM Care Plan, a member of the Jewelers Mutual Group, and IJB/Wexler/Montage Group.

“The major jewelry chains have long offered jewelry care protection plans not only as an added revenue stream, but also as an advantage over the independent jeweler,” said Dick Abbott, CEO of Abbott Jewelry Systems. “It’s high time independents level the playing field.”

Jewelry sales, jewelry care income and financing are three important profit centers for chain jewelry stores. Abbott Jewelry Systems has been looking for innovative ways to help customers beyond the scope of traditional jewelry software. “We’re committed to providing the independent jeweler with the features and functionality which enable them to compete and win in an ever-evolving retail environment,” Abbott added.

That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
