My favorite Pandora shops

While Pandora does not sell products from their website, they have more than 10,500 points of sale and almost 700 Concept Stores (here are all the different types of stores).  I mostly like to shop at my local Concept Store; I’ve developed a great relationship with my saleslady.  It makes a huge difference to the shopping experience.  Honestly, I prefer my Concept Store because they have all the products and the salespeople are attentive.  When I go to shop-in-shops, I usually wait for quite a while before anyone even bothers to help me.  That’s just my personal experience though :).  I know lots of you have wonderful shop-in-shops!

I’ve also ordered online; for people new to Pandora, there are a lot of counterfeiters out there, especially on eBay.  Lisa and I made a guide to spot fake Pandora charms.  I’ve only bought from Authorized Pandora Online Retailers – which is located in the Notes section of the Pandora Facebook page (see here for links), and usually for retired charms since I can’t get them in my store.  Most online stores cannot ship outside the country because of restrictions Pandora imposes.

One online shop that is my favorite is Perlen.  I must have bought almost 20 packages from them so far (in 5 months @@).  It can be a bit confusing to order from them so I’ve created a handy tutorial.  🙂

Another great place to get discount charms is from the Navy Exchange and Army and Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) – Pandora is generally 10% off and no tax!  But these stores are only accessible for those with military base access.

What’s your favorite place to shop?

    I have military base access and I my concept store gives 10% off for military so do shop in shops around here. So ladies if your military don’t hesitate to ask.

    Just recently got re addicted to Pandora. I had 2 bracelets and a necklace and stopped there a couple of years ago. Just happened to see the March promotion and now the addiction is back bigger than ever and partly do to your amazing webiste. Thank you so much for all of the tips, sneak peeks at future beads. I am already planning an animal themed bracelet thanks to you. Also must have 2 of the london charms and cruise ship so that will be for a tropical/travel bracelet and a silver/2 tone bracelet. I’m off to check perlen, since you gave such a great step by step tutorial otherwise I’d don’t think I would take the time to figure it out.

    Thank you thank you thank you for all the pictures and information!

    Smiles!

      Their customer service is very good and yes, they speak English :). I’ve looked at the website and it seems legit, but I haven’t ordered from them before.
