Whilst we are still in the midst of British summer time, (even though it may not always feel like it in Scotland, sigh!) we are busy planning for the exciting months ahead, and by that we mean… Christmas! It is a universally known truth that the best presents come in the smallest packages and what better time to treat a loved one to a gift that they will remember forever. Whilst we have all been holidaying by the sea, some of our team have been preparing for our busy Christmas period, just around the corner! Here’s an idea of what they have been getting up to…
Managing Director Nicola and Senior Buyer Margaret have spent the last few weeks in buying meetings with suppliers in the Glasgow head office searching for the perfect Christmas stock, due to hit our windows the first week in October. August is a busy month for our team because it’s the main buying period and a chance to see what other lines we will consider stocking in the future. Although, stock is always reconsidered over the course of the year to keep our offerings fresh and exciting. This gives us the chance to keep on top of trends and invest in new products which we think our customers will love.
It’s not just shopping though, there’s a lot of planning, research and analysis that goes into our buying activity to establish the key trends and demands, whilst always keeping in mind what our customer wants. We understand that every customer is different and that’s why it’s important for us to stock a wide range of jewellery to cater to everyone’s tastes and budgets. Each supplier we meet carries a variety of ranges from fine diamond jewellery, coloured stone set jewellery, gold jewellery such as earrings, wristwear and pendants as well as our silver branded stock.
Of course, we will always have our best sellers available every season, as these are the pieces our customers have come to know and love. However, we enjoy buying in new lines as well to freshen the stock, keep it current, interesting and exciting throughout the year.
Having been established since 1895, we know our customers pretty well and we believe that for us, maintaining our levels of quality jewellery and exceptional service is always a priority. As they say, trends come and go but style is eternal!
Nicola and Margaret are both looking forward to attending the International Jewellery London show coming up on Monday 3rd September. They will be on the look out for new suppliers and stunning pieces to excite our customers over the festive period!
Keep an eye out for our new stock coming into stores from early October. Dare we say it, Christmas will be here before we know it!
