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.

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.
