Karen Burke, Fred Burke, Alison Haynie, and Sydney Moss from Burkes Fine Jewelers recently attended the exclusive 2019 Retail Jewelers Organization (RJO) Winter Buying Show in Nashville, Tenn.

The 3-day event, themed “The Grand Ole Winter Buying Show,” provided jewelers from around the nation the opportunity to purchase new items at pre-negotiated prices, share business ideas, network with peers and check out the latest industry trends.

“Purchasing jewelry at pre-negotiated prices at the RJO show is beneficial because we are able to pass those savings along to our customers,” said Karen Burke of Burkes Fine Jewelers in Kilmarnock. “The educational opportunities that are offered at the show are also important because we want to make sure we are aware of what is happening in our industry.”

Hundreds of jewelers attended seminars covering a range of topics including how to create more store traffic and loyal customers, how to cut expenses and increase revenue and how to advertise to millennials.

For more information about Burkes Fine Jewelers or to view some of their new purchases, visit them at 86 S. Main St. in Kilmarnock or online at http://www.burkesjewelers.com.
