LAFAYETTE, LA – Stuller has announced the dates for the 2016 Bridge conference series, which will be kicking off its seventh season in May.

“Bridge is about personal growth and renewal,” says Ken Dugas, interactive events director for Stuller. “It offers a chance to step away from the day-to-day and to be inspired by new ideas through our in-depth classes and networking.”

Classes focus on issues such as bridal merchandising, inventory management, new directions in customization technology, and repair pricing. “Since Bridge, bridals sales are up about 60 percent,” says Tim Wright of Simply Unique Jewelry Designs.

This year’s Bridge dates are as follows:

  • May 15-17
  • June 12-14
  • August 21-23
  • October 2-4
  • October 16-18

Stuller’s remote events – Transform Tours – are also returning this spring. Stuller professionals travel the country, addressing the challenges independent jewelers face and discussing how to remain relevant in an ever-changing retail landscape.

“These tours are a great opportunity for owners, managers, and sales associates who want to learn about marketplace trends,” says Heather Kutzman, sales services director, Stuller. “We present insight on inventory management, new consumer technology on the sales floor, and the all-important bridal business.”

The 2016 Transform Tour event schedule is as follows:

  • Boston, MA – March 6
  • Milwaukee, WI – April 10
  • New Orleans, LA – September 11
  • Minneapolis, MN – September 25

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
