From the Publisher: January–February 2018

Happy New Year! By the time this issue is out, you’ll have made it through the holiday season and you should have a pretty good idea about how your store fared.

As I wrote in our last issue, the amount of jewelry sold is actually on the rise, so hopefully, that means more revenue per store for the thousands of remaining U.S. jewelry retailers.
