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.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
