Buying group welcomes jeweller as it celebrates its 40th anniversary.
The UK’s longest established jewellery and watch buying organisation, Houlden Group, has announced Hugh Rice Limited as its latest member.
Hugh Rice, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, has two own branded stores in Hull and Beverley selling a wide variety of brands and also has six official Pandora outlets in various UK locations including London, Sheffield and Harrogate.
The company has seen a “meteoric rise” over the past two years, but is very much a family firm with traditional values. As well as stocking numerous premium brands, they also offer a bespoke jewellery design service, made by its team of jewelers.
Mike Rice, managing director of Hugh Rice Limited, said: “We attended the most recent Houlden Group management and buying event as a potential member and were very impressed with the level of professionalism; not only throughout the actual group but also in terms of the materials produced, the speakers at the event and the overall experience.
Now that we’re officially a member, we’re looking forward to networking and sharing ideas with like-minded jewellers.”
Stuart Laing from Houlden Group said: “We are excited to welcome Hugh Rice Limited as a member of Houlden Group. The company stands for exceptional quality and customer service making it the perfect addition to the Group.
I am sure they will benefit greatly from the numerous business opportunities and support which is available to our members.”
