Sarah Pomfrey

Store manager, Discount Second Hand Jewellery, Gateshead

DOB 04/02/86 Age 29

Under Pomfrey’s stewardship, sales at Discount Second Hand Jewellery’s Gateshead store shot up 80% in 2014, while margin also advanced 69%.

Pomfrey also provides regular sales training for all of her staff members, which helps to engender confidence and a high standard of product knowledge within the store.

Pomfrey has a keen eye for visual merchandising and plans her window displays with meticulous detail, resulting in a well thought-out, well-presented and balanced retail display.

She is passionate about her stock and maintaining standards within the store and, while the vast majority of the stock is second-hand, Pomfrey’s care and attention to detail means you would be forgiven for thinking it was all brand new. She has also completed extensive training courses on diamonds, gemstones, watches and sales, as well as her JET 1 diploma.
