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.

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
