What are the benefits of being a CJG member?

The Canadian Jewellery Group has 93 retail members with 110 jewellery stores across Canada. Our members are respected, well-established jewellers with many years of industry experience. CJG’s ability to negotiate the very best terms, prices and services with our vendors empowers our members allowing them to compete with national chain stores. Each retail member continues to operate their unique stores independently (many of our members are family businesses) while taking advantage of the strength of CJG’s group buying power.

Big Purchasing Power

The combined volume of the Group enables the members to purchase more efficiently, which creates more sales and profits – both in the short and long term. We seek discounts directly off-invoice, as well as extended repayment terms, prompt-payment discounts, and volume rebates from our suppliers. Our members reap immediate, tangible benefits by purchasing through the group with immediate reimbursement of discounts to their members accounts.

Valuable Member Networking

The free flow of information between members is one of the most important advantages the Group has to offer. Within the Group, generally only one company in a particular area is accepted for membership. Members enjoy discussing successes, failures, time and cost savings procedures and other industry knowledge with other members. This leads to tangible benefits, and these savings are often underestimated. Our secure online member forum – the CJG Roundtable – is available 24/7 for our members and suppliers to communicate with each other.

Exclusive Annual Buying Show

We hold our exclusive buying show annually in Toronto to coincide with our Annual General Meeting. It is a great opportunity to network with CJG endorsed suppliers and fellow retail members, and attend educational industry seminars. This event includes our Annual Gala Dinner Awards evening and Silent Auction to raise funds for Ronald McDonald Houses across Canada.

Communications

Members are encouraged to continuously engage with other members and suppliers through our online Roundtable forum. Designed specifically for member-to-member communications, and member-to-supplier communications, it is a quick and effective way to get answers to pertinant questions and to reach out to others for advice. The CJG head office publishes eConnection! periodically with member news and information updates. Extended Warranty Program templates and marketing templates are available to assist you with your promotional needs
