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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
