CMJ adds two retailers to its membership
October 2017 – The Company of Master Jewellers (CMJ) has added two independent retail jewellers, Somerset-based Joseph Welch Jewellers and Monaghan-based Magill Jewellers, to its membership.
Established in November 2011 in the heart of Wellington, Joseph Welch Jewellers specialises in beaded jewellery offering customers brands including Trollbeads, Ohm Beads, RedBaliFrog and Nomination.
Joseph has worked in the jewellery trade for over 18 years, gaining experience from his parents who have been involved in the industry since he was born.
On his decision to apply to become a CMJ Retail Member, he said, “I wanted to join CMJ because of the networking opportunities and to meet like-minded retailers. I believe the support, experiences and knowledge of the group and their retailers will assist me greatly in growing my business in the future.”
Magill Jewellers were established in Monaghan town, Ireland in 1922 and have enjoyed great success, growing from a small store to become one of the leading jewellers in the north-east of the country.
As well as stocking a vast selection of brands in-store, Magill Jewellers also offer an in-house jewellery and watch repair service.
On joining CMJ, owner Gerard Toal said: “Being part of a large buying group such as CMJ, will be of great benefit to our company. It will give us access to an array of suppliers whose products would suit our range and image. The buying events and networking opportunities will also be a great support to us.”Following the announcement Samantha Glew, CMJ’s membership liaison manager, said, “I’m so pleased to welcome Joseph Welch and Magill Jewellers into the CMJ family.
“I’m looking forward to working with them and ensuring they reap all the benefits CMJ can offer. It’s also great to have another retail jeweller from the Republic of Ireland join the CMJ membership.”
The addition of Joseph Welch Jewellers and Magill Jewellers takes CMJ’s total number of retail members to 160, with more than 400 doors across the UK and Ireland.
