From the press release...
May 15 2008, Greensboro, N.C. - THE BLISSFUL, located at 4605 Fulton Drive in Canton, Ohio, has been named one of Home Accents Today's 50 Retail Stars for 2008 by editors of the premier trade magazine for the home accents industry. The stores selected have exhibited strength in merchandising, display and advertising, are operating successfully in their marketing areas and have a strong presence in their communities.
Home Accents Today editors focused on independent retailers, specifically those considered specialty or home accent stores. Members of the home furnishings industry were invited to suggest stores and retailers were encouraged to submit information describing their businesses. This list was compiled and narrowed down by research analysts and editors of the publication.
"Home Accents Today has the privilege of working with and being read by thousands of home furnishings retailers, and selecting the 50 Stars is never an easy process," said Jenny Heinzen York, editor in chief. "We are particularly proud of this year's honorees, as these store owners have had to harness their entrepreneurial and creative spirits to stay competitive and relevant in challenging economic times."
The 50 Retail Stars feature is published in the May 2008 issue of Home Accents Today.
