"They set the mark as far as jewellery buying groups are concerned. They make it possible for the small retailer to be up there with the best them. They make running my business easier and take some of the worry out of it. Having the driving force of Nationwide behind you can only help you to succeed."
Roula Nicolacopoulos, Diann Darling Jewellers
"This year was our first (conference) for a while and I can only say the job you and your team did on the weekend was tremendous. There was nothing to fault and we have been encouraged by your presentation to go forward with confidence . Many thanks to the whole team from us both."
Tony Strijland, Time Mart
"Clyde and I just wanted to thank you again for the course, we both found it extremely useful and inspiring. I think the biggest benefit for me was having all that information in one go and seeing how to bring everything together!"
Rachel Vellacott, Jamies Jewellers
"Pascoe Jewellers are in Nationwide Jewellers and have been since the beginning. The group has been an amazing support over the 26 years, as with any business we all have our challenges and it is reassuring to know you have the help from the group and the members if needed. The jewellery industry is in a changing environment, you need to change as the market does, you need the knowledge and marketing skills to adapt to these changes and a great buying group like Nationwide will help educate you in these skills, any individual jeweller not in a buying group today I believe is at a disadvantage."
Jeff Pascoe, Pascoe Jewellers
"Nationwide Members enjoy many benefits, but in my view it is the collective strength that is so important. The strength to buy at the very best price, the strength in promotions, and a strong brand to help you compete in an ever-changing market. Also important are the many opportunities to talk with other members. It is a pleasure to be a Nationwide Supplier since day one, and I hope to continue to be for many years to come."
Ted Pevy, The Jewellery Centre
"Nationwide is run by a very professional and proactive team offering their members numerous promotions, conferences with guest speakers and activities that members may not be able to achieve as an independently operated store. Comradeship between the members has built long-lasting friendships and we enjoy being a part of the group."
John Worth, Worth & Douglas Ltd
"We appreciate having a team of experienced jewellery retailers that we can call on for advice, the networking between ourselves and other similar businesses and the friends we have made on both sides of the Tasman."
Jenni Franich, John Franich Jewellers
“Since joining the Nationwide Buying Group in 2006 as a small independent jeweller, we have experienced growth and have been able to move to a new, bigger and better store. Not only does being part of Nationwide open up access to a variety of different suppliers, they are also able to supply us with training, support, and industry advice. The annual IJF trade fair is also a great opportunity to network with other group members, with incentives such as Nationwide dollars to spend at the fair.”
