Coleman Furniture, part of the Renegade Furniture Group, recently announced that it was named part of the “Internet Retailer Top 1000” last week, making the list of the America's 1,000 largest ecommerce retailers. At number 537, Coleman Furniture sits near the top of the “Second 500,” a selection of small and mid-size retailers that are actually outperforming the majority of their larger rivals. Online sales for the Second 500 grew by 14.9% in 2015, while the Top 500 grew only by 13.5%.
“We’re excited to be part of the Second 500,” said says Bruce Krinsky, CEO of Coleman Furniture. “That puts us in great company with other strong mid-size ecommerce retailers. We’re confident that, with our high quality products, low pricing, free shipping, and White Glove delivery, we’ll continue on this path of success.”
The annual guides from Internet Retailer are considered some of the most respected sources of information in the ecommerce industry. The 1,000 companies included in the two guides represent 85.8% of total online sales in the United States. Retailers are ranked by a combination of over 275 metrics, including sales, growth, and conversion rate, and for the first time this year, are being given a Performance Score based on 10 short and long-term metrics.
