Furniture Today's Top 100 Furniture Stores

Top 100 stores' sales jumped 9.9% in 2012

Top 100 CoverHIGH POINT - Furniture/Today's Top 100 U.S. Furniture Stores posted a 9.9% increase in furniture, bedding and accessories sales last year as the big continued to get bigger, gobbling up market share in the midst of a slowly improving economic climate.

It was the third consecutive annual gain for the Top 100 - a nearly double-digit increase at that - as combined sales jumped to $31.4 billion from $28.6 billion for the same companies in 2011.

The Top 100, which Furniture/Today began ranking 22 years ago, also saw its first healthy gain in overall store count in years, up 7.3%, or 621, stores for a total of 9,137 units at year's end. Last year's Top 100 companies increased store count by 1.3%, and the figure has bobbed up and down by a similar margin since the 2008 report.
