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.

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
