Prime manufacturer hosts nine events on increasing retailer profitability
(LAFAYETTE, La.) – Stuller, Inc., having consulted more than 500 independent retail jewelers through its Bridge conference series last year, plans to surpass that number in 2012. Nine Bridge conference dates are now scheduled for customers of the prime manufacturer at its global headquarters in Lafayette, LA.
Bridge tackles contemporary areas of potential improvement for traditional jewelry stores, with a blend of educational seminars and group dialogue on being connected, innovative, and more profitable.
“Over the last year, we’ve introduced more than 500 retailers from 300 stores to what’s available to them from Stuller and the industry,” says President and CEO Jay Jackson. “Pleased with that success, we invite many more of our customers to experience some of Lafayette’s Cajun culture and take away innovative ideas from our Bridge events in 2012.”
Linda Fairfield, who operates William Howard’s Jewelers in Sanford, FL, credits Stuller’s Bridge conference for her decision to revitalize the store. “After 26 years, I had the desire to give up and close the doors. All that has changed,” says Fairfield. “I came home with many changes that will cost nothing! I feel renewed and excited, and there is only one word to describe [the Bridge conference] – Wow!”
