Pandora Has Big Plans for US Market

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 | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
