60 vendors will be on hand.
(Press Release) CULVER CITY, CA – The Leading Jewelers Guild Buying Show in July has sold out for the fourth year in a row. The 59th annual show has a long waiting list of vendors, manufacturers and suppliers waiting to get in.
Leading Jewelers Guild is the only member owned jewelry industry group that has been in operation since 1958. The Leading Jewelers mission is to create a strategic alliance of independent jewelers that develops competitive advantages for its members.
Steven Singer has taken the helm as president of the progressive organization. As industry closings continue to rise, Leading Jewelers has found strength in numbers to weather the changes in retail shopping habits while adapting and growing as a group. Singer is excited to lead a collection of the best independent jewelry stores in the country.
Leading Jewelers Guild is founded on strong collaboration, continued education and the most progressive training in the industry. Leading Jewelers Guild is a merchandising, marketing, catalog advertising and production resource dedicated to the overall business needs of member companies.
Forty‐eight member companies, representing over 150 retail locations throughout the U.S. and Canada, enjoy the benefits of membership every year.
The strength of the group was recognized by the vendors that sought the 60 slots offered this year.
“Our Merchandise committee plays matchmaker to potential vendors for our 48 members” said merchandise committee member Tyna Wheat of the Diamond Galleria, Evanston, IN. “It has to be a good fit for our members and our vendors. Our goal is to set up partnerships that can grow their businesses together.”
