Buffalo, NY (PRWEB) September 19, 2013
Christmas Central, a Cheektowaga retail business focusing on home and holiday decor, was ranked on the Inc. Magazine 2013 500/5000 List, which recognizes independent entrepreneurs’ development based on statistics from four years of financial data. For the third consecutive year, Christmas Central was noted on this annual list as one of the nation’s 5,000 fastest growing private companies – placing the online retailer in an elite group of businesses.
In 2007, Inc. Magazine expanded the list from 500 to incorporate the top 5,000 companies, noting that entrepreneurs required more contextual information to thrive in the ever-changing business world. Adapting to and evolving with this constant flux, Christmas Central experienced a five-year growth rate of 169 percent, a 54 percent increase from 2011. Inc. Magazine reported that was ranked in the top 50th percentile of growing companies.
Christmas Central CIO Nathan Gordon stated that progress is only expected to continue. “It’s an honor to have been nationally ranked,” Gordon said. “This recognition is a testament to the company’s devotion to hard work, progress, and the customers’ loyalty and satisfaction as a whole.”
By taking this daily dedication of continual improvement to heart, Christmas Central succeeded on a local scale as well. This 2013 Inc. 5000 list also featured 366 companies founded in New York, 10 of which were companies based out of Western New York. Among this group, Christmas Central was ranked fourth.
