Pandora plans to buy back about $75 million in jewelry from retailers.

The idea is to help retailers avoid holding onto stock for too long, Rapaport News reports.

The repurchased inventory will be smelted, with new jewelry to be made from the material.

Rapaport reports that the program will be rolled out in “select global markets.”

The effort is part of a broader Pandora restructuring program expected to cost the company over $224 million.

The plan comes as Pandora prepares for a brand relaunch that will kick off Aug. 28 in Los Angeles.

At the event, the company “will reveal its new company purpose, brand expression and visual identity, and show the Autumn 2019 collection.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
