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

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
