Home Accents Today Retail Stars of 2015

01
JUNE
2015

We are so honored to have been named a Retail Design Star by the editors of the premier trade magazine for the home accents industry, Home Accents Today!

The Retail Stars list 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. You can see why this is such an honor for us!

SummerHouse is a 2015 Retail Star! // www.alwayssummerblog.com/ / / / / \ \ \ \ \

Susan Dickenson, Retail Editor at Home Accents Today, says “SummerHouse is a beautiful, first-class retail and design operation that does everything right. Their merchandising, social media, and that gorgeous store! And they do lots of catered events, classes and parties with authors, artists and designers. I also love that the energy and design expertise of Lisa Palmer and her staff are so perfectly presented on SummerHouse’s website and blog, where it’s ‘Always Summer.’ They seem to love what they do there. We’re honored to have SummerHouse on this year’s list.”

The magazine’s editors said SummerHouse and this year’s honorees demonstrate that it takes a lot more than great product to outsell the competition, whether it’s the big box stores, the online sites or the shop across the street.

“Retail is fun, but it is surely not easy. In fact, there has never been a tougher time to be an independent retailer, with the ongoing challenge of chain-store competitors now supplemented by the dramatic growth of online retail,” said Jenny Heinzen York, editor in chief of Home Accents Today. “The 2015 Retail Stars represent some of the best independent stores in the country – ones that have taken on these challenges with a combination of clever entrepreneurship, innovation, merchandising, customer service, marketing and community involvement. We are delighted to recognize these talented stores, and, take this opportunity to encourage everyone to support their own local businesses.”
