Survey Participants Receive Free, Custom Benchmarking Reports
To thank you for completing the survey, Jewelers of America will send you two invaluable reports at no cost.

You'll also receive a copy of the 2013 Cost of Doing Business Report (see sample ) with comprehensive survey results and industry data trends (retail value: $199.95). An additional benefit, for jewelers who choose to participate in future years, future Reports will reveal your company’s performance trends over time – it’s like having a personal business analyst!

The Cost of Doing Business Report reveals benchmarking data for over 100 performance measures, including: Net Sales Per Store; Sales & Profitability by Merchandise Category; Profit & Gross Margins; Space Productivity; Inventory Performance; Personnel Performance; and Operating Expenses.

How to Participate
For your convenience, there are three simple ways to complete the confidential survey: online or via an Excel document or a printable PDF. Visit to start the survey or download survey forms. All of these options can be easily completed by you, your accountant or financial planner.
