Home Furnishings Business’ 4th Annual Power 50 Ranking
2014 by in Furniture Retailing, Industry
Welcome to the fourth annual Home Furnishings Business Power 50 retail ranking. The retail ranking — our take on how retailers should be ranked — takes into account retail sales volume, social media and market share. This year we made a few changes to better reflect overall performance.
With regard to social media, rankings are influenced by Klout subscribers. If a retailer wasn’t a Klout subscriber, we used Facebook likes and Twitter followers as the criteria. This year, we replaced the popular vote with industry involvement in associations like the National Home Furnishings Association, buying groups like Furniture First or Furniture Marketing Group, as well as organizations like the Furniture Hall of Fame.
We also broadened our net this year by expanding our sample from 1,000 retailers to more than 4,000 retailers under consideration. We expanded our pool by tossing in our subscribers, as well as subscribers to our sister company FurnitureCore and other industry entities.
Information on social media resides in the public marketplace; that’s where that data came from. Retail sales are pulled from industry data and public filings where applicable. We promise we did not use proprietary client information to create the rankings.
