Trade Organization Memberships
Jewelers are not known for selling everything they have in their safes. They, too often, believe that this surplus inventory will eventually sell. Therefore, they count it, claim it, and insure it year after year.
Although the shelf life of a piece of jewelry far exceeds the milk in your refrigerator, it still sours at some point. One of the platforms of our new venture specifically addresses the need to effectively relieve excess inventory to maximize your returns.
If you are open for a discussion and for a no-cost review of your aged inventory, then let’s set a time to talk. Running your business while an industry professional is quietly working on your behalf makes sense and increases cash flow. Let us talk.
