Ben Bridge Jeweler is transferring ownership of its Pandora Stores to Pandora Group.

Pandora will assume ownership of the 37 Ben Bridge Jeweler store locations, which are located in the U.S. and Canada, in early March.

Ben Bridge is Pandora’s largest North America franchisee. The company partnered with Pandora for West Coast business growth in spring 2010. The collaboration evolved from a roll-out of Pandora in all Ben Bridge stores to free-standing Pandora stores in five U.S. states and British Columbia, Canada.

“The cornerstone of our business is building customers for life and that is why we first fell in love with Pandora,” said Lisa Bridge, president and CEO of Ben Bridge Jeweler. “This has been an important and successful chapter in our history and we know our team will be in excellent hands as a part of the broader Pandora organization. This pivot will give us greater focus and enable us to innovate and grow in new ways. We are excited to fuel our Ben Bridge growth, investing in the personal experience we create through every touchpoint with our customers. We are very proud of our team and the special moments we have helped create.”

Pandora and Ben Bridge will continue their business partnership with Pandora jewelry available in select Ben Bridge retail locations and on benbridge.com.

Thinking of Liquidating? Wilkerson’s Got You Covered

Bil Holehan, the manager of Julianna’s Fine Jewelry in Corte Madera, Calif., decided to go on to the next chapter of his life when the store’s owner and namesake told him she was set to retire. Before they left, Holehan says they decided to liquidate some of the store’s aging inventory. They chose Wilkerson for the sale. Why? “Friends had done their sales with Wilkerson and they were very satisfied,” says Holehan. He’d enthusiastically recommend Wilkerson to anyone looking to stage a liquidation or going-out-of-business sale. “There were no surprises,” he says. “They were very professional in their assessment of our store, what we could expect from the sale and they were very detailed in their projections. They were pretty much on the money.”
