Originally published in the August 2014 issue of Home & Textiles Today

Walmart and Bed Bath & Beyond have been nipping at each otherís heels for the top spot in home textiles. Could one of them finally be pulling away?

Home Textiles Today's exclusive survey of the Top 50 home textiles retailers ranks the top U. S. retailers by sales of 2013 home textiles. All home textiles categories, bed, bath, kitchen, table linen and window coverings, including alternative window coverings, custom decorating and accessories that are generally sold with textile items, are included in the sales estimates. In order to be eligible for the ranking, each retailer must sell more than one home textile category.

This exclusive report also ranks the Top 10 retailers by 2013 sales of housewares. Housewares include small kitchen electrics, personal electrics, home environment electrics, cookware, bakeware, kitchen gadgets, storage and cleaning products.

All sales information, except for publicly held companies that break out line-of-business sales for home textiles and housewares, are Home & Textiles Today market research estimates. Sales figures are given for the 12-month period ending closest to December 31, 2013. Individual retailer descriptions include the date of the fiscal year end or the 12-month periods that deviate significantly from that date.

Sales estimates are based on information from a variety of sources including the companies themselves, public company filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, discussions with industry analysts and suppliers and published and unpublished reports, including newspaper articles in various retail trading areas.

This ranking is by no means comprehensive and does not represent the entire industry. More than the 50 home textiles retailers and the 10 housewares retailers listed are vital companies within the industry. Home & Textiles Today chooses not to include some companies due to lack of verification of sales figures.
