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.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
