For the second consecutive year, Inc. Magazine has named Christmas Central to the Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. Christmas Central ranked 1,445 overall and 72 in the retail industry among private U.S. companies.

Last year, in the 2011 Inc. 5000, Christmas Central was ranked 2,177 overall and 104 in the retail industry, with a 3-year growth rate of 115 percent.
