Is too much choice bad for jewellers?

In retail hubs, presenting consumers with too much choice can be considered a blessing and a burden. So how do jewellers find the perfect balance to increase sales?

The answer largely comes down to understanding the psychology of shopping – that is, how consumers make purchasing decisions.

Jeweller’s March issue investigates how the brain makes choices and why customers choose one store or piece of jewellery over another. More isn’t always better but jewellers who are able to work with customers to sort through large product selections are poised for success.

This month’s issue, which has now been mailed, also features an exclusive 10-page report on Australia and New Zealand’s three buying groups. The biennial report provides a comprehensive overview on the state of each group, including member and store counts as well as how they’re adapting to a fast-changing retail environment.

Ever considered what your customers will look like in 2020? According to Ryan Estis, it’s an important question as retailers wishing to remain relevant must understand how customers are changing and anticipate their future needs.

There’s a whole lot more in Australia and New Zealand’s #1 jewellery industry magazine, including an article on how to avoid the ‘hell zone’ and what retailers can learn from the cat that sits on the hot stove lid. See below for more details.
