Company aiming to address change in female consumer behavior.

Pandora is charting a new design strategy and hoping to capture an emerging customer demographic, as WWD writes. The article says that the company has identified a change in consumer behavior – specifically the rise of the “self-empowered” female shopper – and that it will renew its focus on categories such as rings and earrings to address that change.

“I think that, in the past, we were designing charms – and then jewelry. What we do now is design concepts for jewelry and within those concepts there is the charm category,” Stephen Fairchild, senior vice president and chief creative officer at Pandora, told the news outlet.

The article adds that Pandora has worked with a consulting agency to tailor its messaging for the 21st century consumer. “Women are much more self-empowered, more confident within themselves, and also very confident in self-purchasing,” says Fairchild. “Whereas in the past I would primarily say that the jewelry industry was all about gifting, the interesting shift is that now the consumer is willing to gift to herself.”

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
