Call for nominations: 2014 Retail Stars

10th annual list, honoring independent retailers, to publish in May

Home Accents Today is now accepting nominations for its 10th annual 50 Retail Stars feature, which will publish in the May, 2014 issue. Retail Stars logo

The 50 Retail Stars list, sponsored by AmericasMart Atlanta, recognizes independent brick-and-mortar retailers of home accents, including furniture stores and interior design boutiques, that are creative in their merchandising, contributing to their communities, and distinguishing themselves from the competition. This is not a ranking, and is not based on sales volume.

Stores that have been honored as a Retail Star within the past five years are ineligible for the current year's list. Retailers that were named to the list prior to 2009, however, may resubmit.

Home furnishings retailers may nominate their store by completing and submitting the online form at on or before Fri., March 14, Home Accents Today Retail Stars 20142014. Manufacturers, sales reps and consumers may nominate their favorite home furnishings retailers by submitting as much information on the form as possible, including the store's owner and contact information.

The 2014 Retail Stars will be listed in the May 2014 issue of Home Accents Today. Honorees will receive both print and digital copies to reproduce and use on websites and in marketing materials. The retailers will also receive a certificate and formatted press release to share with local publications and media.

Please direct questions and requests for additional information to Research Analyst Stephanie Nickell at or Retail Editor Susan Dickenson at
