This year's group of gifted retailers are typical ?? if one can use that word to describe gift merchants. Selected from around the country, they represent the range in both size and variety of stores that comprise the retail segment of our industry.
Most are independently owned and are single store operations; 65 percent are selling in 3,000 square feet of space or less. Gifts & Decorative Accessories' exclusive report, 25 Gifted Retailers, presents snapshots of independent gift and decorative accessory retailers that are using innovating approaches to marketing and merchandising and are making a difference in their communities. This list is by no means comprehensive, nor is it a ranking. Many more than the 25 retailers listed here are strong retailers within their communities. Because sales volumes are of interest, however, Gifts & Decorative Accessories does provide sales estimates for all companies. All sales figures and ranges are Gifts & Decorative Accessories market research estimates and are for total 2010 store sales, which may include revenues from the sale of products other than gifts and accessories. All sales figures and store counts are for the calendar year 2010.
