Should I Stay or Should I Go?

by Angie Ash, EVP Well, here we are with another JCK show under our belts. After going to this show for years and years, can I get an amen that there’s no place like home once the whirlwind of Vegas comes to its final stop? Dorothy definitely got that right. Every year, as exhibitors, we approach the JCK...

The Most Important Audit You Can Do

by Shane O’Neill, VP Retailers often review various aspects of their business. Whether it’s their website, POS and accounting software, etc. Yet few ever audit their most important asset; their brand.  Auditing your brand is important because it allows your business to adapt and adjust to the changing times, and times are changing more than ever. The fact...

Are you better?

A Case for Sustainability

All you have to do is think about your own purchasing decisions. The journey you take when you are considering making a large purchase...

By Angie Ash, EVP It’s not hard to see the effects of inflation as we know it “at the moment” when we fill up our gas tanks and go to the grocery store. At $4.00+ at the low end for a gallon of gas and $11.00 a pound for quality smoked ham, for example, the proof is...

By Ellen Fruchtman, President I just completed a 3-day stint at the Centurion Jewelry Show. One of the first speakers was Milton Pedraza, CEO of the Luxury Institute who proceeded to talk about too many items to mention, but one brief subject matter became the impetus for this article: Fear. The fear of doing something different. The...

For Love or Money?

By Angie Ash, Executive Vice President We’re wrapping up our client planning calls and, as always, we’ve had some truly interesting conversations with our retail jewelers. This year, a lot of chatter was on the topic of lab-grown diamonds. Just a few years ago, LGDs were the new kids on the block at JCK at the Pure...

Buy Now, Pay Later?

By Shane O’Neill, Vice President There’s a “new” e-commerce payment option trend that’s growing fast, referred to as Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL). While the concept isn’t actually new, platforms like Affirm do make implementation simpler, especially for small and medium-sized businesses. The question is, is it right for your store, and could it help in growing...
