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

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
