BROOKHAVEN, Miss., May 15, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Home furnishings and design source J. Allan’s, in Brookhaven & Hattiesburg, MS has been named one of Home Accents Today’s Retail Stars for 2019 by editors of the premier trade magazine for the home accents industry.
The Retail Stars list, sponsored by AmericasMart Atlanta and Las Vegas Market, publishes each year in Home Accents Today’s May issue. Members of the home furnishings industry are invited to suggest stores, and retailers are encouraged to submit information describing their businesses. This year’s list was compiled and narrowed down by research analysts and Thomas Lester, Home Accents Today’s business editor.
“We are very honored and humbled to be recognized by the benchmark organization of the home accents industry as one of their top 50 retail stars of 2019! We take a lot of pride in curating our home accents and it’s a reflection of the talented people we have working at J Allan’s. It’s a blessing to have each of them!” - Christopher Robinson, Owner.
J. Allan’s has locations at 219 S Jackson St, Brookhaven, MS & 6190 US-98, Hattiesburg, MS.
The Retail Stars list, now in its 15th year, recognizes independent brick-and-mortar retailers of home accents – including furniture stores, home accessories boutique stores and interior design showrooms – that merchandise creatively, have a positive presence in their local communities and stand out from the competition.
"Home Accents Today's 2019 Retail Stars list showcases some of the best independent home décor and home furnishings retailers in the country," said Lester. "They are rising above the challenges of an ever-changing retail environment and are raising the bar for their innovations in marketing and merchandising strategies, customer service, and community contributions. This annual honor recognizes their skills, hard work and dedication, and should serve as a reminder to us all to support local businesses.”
Among this year’s batch of Stars, 30 opened their doors after the turn of the century while 24 welcomed customers prior to 2000.
This year’s honorees call 23 states and one Canadian province their home, though many also have stores beyond those borders. Texas leads the way this year with five Retail Stars, including a cluster in the greater Dallas area. Ohio, Colorado and New York have four Stars each while Virginia, Arizona, Florida, California and North Carolina each have three honored stores. Louisiana, Tennessee, South Carolina, Kentucky, Georgia, Illinois, Washington, and Connecticut have a pair of Stars while Iowa, North Dakota, Mississippi, Indiana, Arkansas, British Columbia and Oregon each have a single Star.
