Methodology - Casual Living’s exclusive 2016 Store Operations Survey is based on responses of retailers across the United States. Thirty-nine percent of respondents are casual furniture specialty stores, 18% are hearth and patio specialists, 11% are garden centers, 11% are full-line furniture stores, and 7% each account for pool and patio stores, hardware/home stores and interior design and contract sales.
Fifteen percent of responding retailers had 2015 sales of less than $1 million, 35% had sales between $1 million and $2.9 million, and 50% had sales of $3 million or more.
The 2016 survey represents figures for 2015. Numbers from the 2014 Casual Living Store Operations Survey, printed June 2014, represent figures from 2012.
