Ben Bridge to Transfer 37 Pandora Stores Back to Company

The stores will change hands in early March.




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.”

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
