Both the Continental Buying Group (CBG) and Preferred Jewelers International (PJI) have reported continued growth and success in 2015.
Testimony from Goldsmith Jewelers, Billings, MT, says it all: “If you’re a jeweler you know just how big a deal being a member of the Continental Buying Group really is – especially because of how difficult it is to become part of this prestigious group. To be a CBG member you have to maintain a perfect credit rating and more importantly you have to be BIG. The CBG Jewelers list is a ‘Who’s Who’ of the best and biggest independent jewelers in the fine jewelry category from across the country. Ultimately, CBG is a buying group. The 100 CBG Jewelers buy their inventory together and get much better discounts because of the massive amount of jewelry we buy. Consequently, Goldsmith Co. pays rock bottom prices for every piece of jewelry it purchases. This equates to the best prices for quality jewelry anywhere, guaranteed.”
Part of the new growth at Continental Buying Group and Preferred Jewelers International is introducing and welcoming Estelle Hedaya to CBG and Preferred Jewelers. Hedaya is highly respected and qualified in the jewelry industry. She is the ideal candidate to be taken under CEO Andie Weinman’s wing along with her husband and COO, Joe Murphy.
Preferred Jewelers International is another brainchild of the Weinman/Murphy collaboration. “Preferred is exceeding all anticipations of success with it’s Nationwide International Network and the Nationwide Lifetime Warranty at no additional cost for the consumer,” says Weinman. Preferred is proud of its ever-growing network of 104 retailers with over 200 doors in the United States, Canada, the Virgin Islands and the Caribbean. “Now more than ever, the importance of independent jewelers to unite has become a reality with the Preferred Program,” she added. “Preferred retailers create ‘Experiences that last a Lifetime™.’”
