Mountz Jewelers is the premier jeweler in Central Pennsylvania for over 40 years. Our family owned and operated jewelry company has three locations in the Central Pennsylvania market and offers the most comprehensive jewelry designer brands in the area. Our business was built many years ago with the use of aggressive radio marketing. Over the years, we had moved away from this medium but with the recommendations of other respected retailers, we began a partnership with Freshley Media. Bruce’s focused expertise within our industry is invaluable and has helped guide us in many of our marketing decisions these past two years. We credit Bruce with being a part of our growth and helping us take our business to the next level, with the use of radio, and we look forward to more growth in the future.

"The Wedding Ring Shop is Hawaii’s #1 diamond engagement ring retailer and Bruce’s advertising got us there… he is the Big Kahuna!" In the Spring of 1998 we received a Freshley Media mailer and after initially tossing it aside, I later went through it, was fascinated and gave Bruce Freshley a call. Since then we have never looked back. Bruce put into place what is now the most recognized radio advertising in Honolulu. In our first year with Freshley Media, we did over $1 Million in diamond business alone… and this out of a 675 square foot store in Honolulu’s famous Al Moana center. Bruce’s writing and radio production continued to blossom and we continued to work hard and grow. In 2006 we opened our new freestanding flagship store and growth has exploded even more. Today the Wedding Ring Shop is the largest diamond store in Hawaii. If you are serious about building your company, Bruce Freshley is the greatest advertising mind in the country.
