Trade Magazine Ranks Sheely’s No. 1 in U.S.

NORTH LIMA, Ohio – Home Furnishings Business, a trade publication, has ranked Sheely’s Furniture & Appliance as the No. 1 independent furniture store in the United States that operates entirely within one state, Sherry Sheely said Wednesday.

Sheely is the chief operating officer of the family-owned furniture store. Home Furnishings Business has a circulation of 20,000.

What distinguishes Sheely’s, its COO said, is that her store has only one location, 11450 South Ave., unlike most others on the list that have chains of stores.

In its December 2015 issue, Home Furnishings Business ranked Sheely’s No. 13 on its “Power 50” list, up from 23rd last year. This is the fifth year that the trade magazine has compiled a Power 50.

Home Furnishings rated stores based on a formula based on each retailer’s market share, revenues, industry involvement and social media engagement.
