Furniture/Today's exclusive report, Beyond the Top 100, lists 100 independent furniture stores that are significant players in their respective markets.
This list is by no means comprehensive. Many more than the 100 furniture stores listed here are strong retailers within their communities. This survey does not rank companies, nor is it a continuation of the Top 100 U.S. Furniture Stores, which published in the May 23, 2011 issue.
All sales figures and ranges are Furniture/Today estimates and are for total 2010 store sales, which may include revenues from the sale of products other than case goods and upholstery, bedding and decorative accessories, such as consumer electronics and major appliances. Where possible, the percentage of sales from case goods, upholstery, bedding and decorative accessories is given. All sales figures and store counts are for the calendar year 2010.
The detailed analysis includes:
*The 2011 Beyond stores operated a total of 406 stores in 2010.
*The Beyond stores have 6.8 million square feet of selling space.
*The Beyond stores employ 5,342 individuals.
*The Beyond stores employ 1,714 salespeople.
