Greensboro, N.C.- Simplicity Decor, located at 126 Park Lane in Kirkland, Wash., has been named one of Home Accent Today’s 50 Retail Stars for 2009 by editors of the premier trade magazine for the home accents industry. The stores selected have demonstrated that they operate successfully in their marketing areas, exhibit strength in merchandising, display and/or advertising, and have a positive presence in their local communities.
Home Accent Today editors focused on independent retailers, specifically those considered specialty, home accent or home furnishings stores. Members of the industry were invited to suggest stores and retailers were encouraged to submit information describing their businesses. This list was complied and narrowed down by research analysts and editors of the publication.
“Home Accents Today is trilled to present the 2009 Retail Stars,” said Jenny Heinzen York, editor in chief. “The passion, creativity and dedication shown by this year’s crop of winners is truly inspiring, especially when you consider the challenging economic climate that all retailers are confronting right now. These store owners are much more than survivors—they are fighters who are winning despite the odds stacked against them.”
The 50 Retail Stars feature is published in the May 2009 Issue of Home Accents Today.
