188 Event Area
Jade lovers had a smaller audience compared to jewelry, so Vivian eventually positioned the Gold and Jade Jewelry company as jewelry. Thus, Jobs hired another 100 Jewelers to work at the same time.
However, half of the staff were temporary experts hired from the neighboring town, mainly to deal with the inventory for the opening of the store for the next two months.
These people’s skills were ordinary, and they were only responsible for simple carving and assistant work. Because of Vivian’s slightly higher price, many of the carving masters who happened to be looking for work and had more free time decided to come over and work for two months.
Both the Jade and jewelry carving tasks were in a hurry for Vivian’s opening day. Jobs could only increase the number of staff, and his working hours changed from eight hours to twelve hours.
In order to appease the employees and let them work in peace, Vivian not only provided them with food but also gave them overtime pay. She also made timely arrangements for the dormitories of the masters who came from other places.
With the “power of money”, the preparation work of Gold and Jade Jewelry was generally very smooth. They successfully made it to the official opening a week before Christmas and did not miss this major holiday.
Jewelry companies rarely gave discounts, but in order to promote, Vivian gave a 10% discount every week until Christmas Day. She also specially designed many earrings and rings with Christmas elements. They were placed at the Christmas event area at the entrance, mostly in the range of 15-30 Yuan.
The reason why these earrings and rings were cheap was not that Vivian was making a loss in business, but because she had added a lot of relatively cheap lace, silk, and other fabrics, and matched them with some low-quality gemstones and scraps. The advantage was it has a new style.
What Vivian had captured was everyone’s love for beauty, and she had weakened the existence of gemstones. This way, everyone would shift their attention away from the quality and size of the jewelry when choosing.
You get what you pay for. Consumers naturally knew they couldn’t buy anything high-end at their prices. Vivian only needed to guarantee the style and set it lower than the usual price. After all, it was a promotion, and they had to make some profit.
It was rare to see 10 stores open at the same time in the industry. In addition, Vivian deliberately asked Jobs to release the news to various media outlets. Some domestic friends who joined the jadeite club in M Country also sent many opening flower baskets after seeing Vivian’s strength. They even called the club office to ask for the contact information of Vivian’s company and called to congratulate her before the opening.
Vivian did not care about the change in their attitude. In this world, most people admired the strong, and they would follow whoever had the strength. So, what she wanted to do was to climb to the top and have a position that could compete with Bruno.
However, something else happened during this jubilant period.
After opening, Vivian thought that Julia could also take the opportunity to organize some Christmas activities, so she found an excuse to visit her stall.
Julia’s mother-in-law’s legs weren’t very good, so she had to wait until after lunch rush to go back home. She chose a location that was one kilometer away from home. She didn’t dare to go too far, but the location was okay. There were several old office buildings next to it, two affordable shopping malls, and many residential buildings nearby, so she didn’t have to worry about traffic.
David parked the car by the side of the road, and Vivian came over at 10 in the morning when it wasn’t busy. She got out of the car with her hands on her waist and walked to Julia’s stall.
David and the two female bodyguards followed Vivian out of the car and stood a few meters away to protect her.
In order to make it taste better, Julia had only started making it on the same day. From more than ten meters away, the milky and light aroma had already spread in Vivian’s direction.
Vivian could not help but lick her lips. Her appetite was suddenly aroused, and her desire to buy it became more sincere. She whispered, “Julia.”
Julia turned around and saw Vivian. She was pleasantly surprised. “Vivian!”
Julia saw Vivian’s round belly and immediately stopped kneading. She wiped her hands with a clean, wet towel and took out a high plastic stool from the empty space under the cart. “Have a seat. Are you here for business today?”
“I’m here to buy some food, ” Vivian replied. “I’m hungry.”
Julia smiled. “Simon went to work during the holidays and isn’t here. When school starts, you can ask Leon and Simon if you want to eat again. I’ll ask Simon to bring it over. It’ll save you the time to make this trip.”
Vivian smiled and then asked Julia how business was. After knowing that they didn’t make any losses in the first week, Vivian was relieved. She didn’t come up with this idea to make things worse for her family.
