How to decrease your leasing costs

While rental reviews can be a sore point for jewellers, experts say a little knowledge about leasing laws can go a long way to knowing your rights and reducing your costs.

Jewellery storeowners might be surprised by what is permissible under state leasing laws. Indeed, our report on handling retail rent reviews documents many of the clauses that should prove useful when negotiating with powerful landlords.

Jeweller’s November issue, which has now been mailed, also features the latest white metal design options hitting the market. It seems a new breed of alloy innovations is vying for attention, promising to deliver on quality, price and design.

Are you missing the point about multi-channel retailing and the technology that facilitates it? According to retail expert Bob Phipps, shopping is about discovery, not being discovered.

Have you heard about the “smart jewellery” craze and what it could mean for the independent retailer? We have the lowdown on the newest high-tech ”jewellery” in the form of rings, bracelets and pendants. Smartwatches were so last year! 

This month’s Jeweller includes all of our regular columns as well. There’s a lot of valuable advice about better managing your jewellery business and how to reach for retirement gold – it appears that it’s never too early to start planning.
