New stores and products are in the works.

Denmark-based Pandora plans to inject new life into its U.S. business by focusing on new products and new stores, Bloomberg reports.

Pandora’s U.S. sales were down 10 percent in the first quarter. The company has closed numerous stores amid a tough retail market.

 But Anders Colding Friis told Bloomberg that new products such as an open-ended bracelet have been “well-received” by consumers.

He said company officials “still see opportunities [in the U.S.] and will open more stores, especially in the western part of the country where our store network isn’t fully developed.”

The U.S. currently accounts for about a quarter of the company’s worldwide revenue. That’s down from 40 percent just a few years ago.

The company has ventured beyond charms into other product categories, such as necklaces and earrings. Such offerings will make up a growing portion of Pandora’s business, Bloomberg reports.

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.”
