Run Your Shop Without It Running You will show you how you can have a shop that is efficient and profitable. In the ever-changing business environment, retail jewelers are compelled to make every aspect of their business profitable. If a store is to survive in the future, not only can it not support a loss in the shop; the shop must contribute to the profits of the store. In the years ahead, the shop may very well be the most important asset for the independent retail jeweler. It Is Now More Important Then Ever To Operate The Shop Professionally And Profitably. The business environment has changed over the years, and business practices must change along with it. No longer can the shop be the Necessary Evil, the Achilles Heel of the retail jewelry industry. The shop must be able to stand on its own and provide its share of profits to the store. Then, the store will not just survive in the future, it will THRIVE. In 1999 Bench Media first published Run Your Shop Without It Running You and is the Best Selling book on Jewelry Shop Management. Here is what other has said about this book: “All in all, the book is a no-nonsense guide to running a tight repair shop – It's A Must Read.”INSTORE Magazine “For too many years jewelry storeowners have believed the fallacy the shop can't be a profit center. Brad Simon destroys that notion step-by-step with a practical book that shows owners and shop mangers the keys to profitability.”Professional Jeweler Magazine “This is the best book on setting up and running a shop that I have ever seen. It is a must for every jewelry store and every jeweler should read it.”Andy 'The Tool Guy' Kroungold “Brad is one of the few people who understand how to make a profit in the shop and how to set prices. If you have a shop or are going to install one, you should buy this book. It's great on setting things up in an orderly fashion for best efficiency, which speeds things up and lowers cost. Buy this book; it's a good one.”David Geller “This is going to be one of those classic books that comes to mind whenever someone asks about going into the trade or gets serious about making their shop profitable. There is a lot of practical business sense and many bench tips.”John Caro “Brad Simon reviews much that should be common sense, but unfortunately is often overlooked. It is good to see it laid out and explained for a bench jeweler's perspective. Thanks Brad for such an informative manual.”Tony Baldwin “Brad Simon has taken a potentially boring subject and made it interesting to read. His years at the bench are obvious from the detailed descriptions of what goes on in the shop.” David Lantz “Very well done. An excellent reference guide and tool for jewelers. Jewelers will definitely benefit from this book. I recommend it to all.”Arthur Gordon
