Top 50 RetailersWal-Mart retains the top spot in our latest ranking of top retailers. Who else made the list? Check out Home Textiles Today's exclusive survey of the Top 50 home textiles retailers, which ranks the top U. S. retailers by sales of 2009 home textiles. Click here to access the report.
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.
The ranking crosses all formats of home textiles retailing. Companies are classified by their primary channel of distribution. Channels include discounters; dollar stores; specialty stores; home improvement centers; department stores; national chains, such as Sears; direct-to-consumer retailers that sell primarily through catalogs, television and/or the Internet; warehouse membership clubs; military exchanges; furniture stores; and supercenters, which sell both food and general merchandise in their mix.
All home textiles sales information, except for publicly held companies that break out line-of-business sales for home textiles, are Home Textiles Today market research estimates. Sales figures are given for the 12-month period ending closest to December 31, 2009. 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filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, discussions with industry analysts and suppliers and published and unpublished reports, including newspaper articles in various retail trading areas.
