An Independent Front

Independent retailers make up a huge chunk of the furniture retailing community. We thought it would be interesting to shake up the bag and see how the independent retailer— those with less than $50 million in annual sales and operating in one state—stack up.

Here’s our look at the top 20 independent retailers.

Regional Chains

Regional chains tend to make a big splash in their markets. For our classification purposes, regional chains are those retailers with stores in states other than their own home base. Retailers like Rooms To Go and Havertys who bring big name recognition into the markets in which they operate rank on this list. Other retailers, like Art Van and Grand Home—which have more recently ventured out of their home state to broaden their consumer reach—make the list, too.

Large Independents

Large independent retailers tend to rule their markets. They have annual sales in excess of $50 million, and operate stores within one state. Name recognition among consumers is powerful, and the large independent retailers generate the rewards from owning the lion’s share of their markets.

Going Up

The line between manufacturing and retailing continues to blur, and vertical retailers are gaining steam. Suppliers see great benefit in the ability to control the message and presentation of their brand. Retailers like the Williams-Sonoma lineup of brands, reap similar benefits in controlling look, feel and scent of their products and stores. Here are our vertical lists for both manufacturers who cross over into the retail side of the business and for retailers who step over into the supply side of furniture land.
