New York—Jewelers of America and the Jewelers Board of Trade have extended the deadline for retailers to take part in their Retail Jewelers Benchmarking Study.

The organizations have extended the Oct. 1 deadline to Nov. 8.

An updated version of JA’s previous Cost of Doing Business Survey, the study allows retailers to input key data and run dynamic reports.

It is designed to bring retail jewelers the information they need to make informed decisions about their businesses and improve profitability by allowing them to see how their performance compares with their peers.

Once data has been collected, participants who complete all required questions will have access to the aggregated data and the ability to compare their financials and key performance indicators with other retailers.

The study can be completed online at

Only companies that complete the survey will have free access to the interactive and customizable comparative data tables, charts and reports. Following the data collection period, non-participants can purchase access to the data for $295.

National Jeweler is a for-profit subsidiary of Jewelers of America, which purchased the publication in 2015. The two organizations act independently of each other.
