The retail game has changed and tough times call for businesses to re-examine their approaches to operations – being proactive rather than reactive seems to be more important than ever.
With this in mind, Jeweller’s December issue – which is out now – provides tips and tricks for revitalising and increasing profitability in the upcoming year.
Our latest issue also includes an article that investigates how retailers can turn bad reviews into good business as well as a panel discussion on synthetic diamonds and their impact on the local market.
Jeweller’s Hits & Misses feature – an annual tongue-in-cheek review of the industry’s highs and lows – has reached the five-year mark. This month we reflect on the Hits & Misses stories that have cemented themselves in local jewellery history as well as award overall winners (no mean feat!).
The last 2016 issue of Australia and New Zealand’s #1 jewellery industry magazine not only aims to entertain and educate, but also inspire retailers to achieve success in 2017 and beyond. See below for more details.
