Manufacturer’s footprint continues growing with more store openings planned.

Pandora raised its revenue expectations for the year after reporting outstanding first quarter results, as sales in the first three months of 2016 skyrocketed 34 percent over last year and profit reached nearly $200 million, according to Rapaport. The article says that the Denmark-based jeweler now forecasts its annual revenue to hit $3.06 billion, which would represent a 19 percent increase from a year ago. The company is attributing this year’s expected growth equally to higher same-store sales and its expanding store network, saying it now plans to open 275 concept stores in 2016, up from its previous estimate of 250.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
