NRF Releases List of America’s Fastest-Growing Retailers

The National Retail Federation has released its 2021 “Hot 25 Retailers” list, which ranks the nation’s fastest-growing retailers by domestic sales.

While 2020 was a tough year in brick and mortar for obvious reasons, it afforded new opportunities for e-commerce retailers. Perhaps, then, it’s no surprise that Wine.com topped the list with 99.4 percent U.S. sales growth as Americans made the best of nationwide lockdowns.

Aside from adult-beverage purveyors, home-improvement chains also flourished amid the pandemic. Tractor Supply Co., Lowe’s and Home Depot placed at Nos. 12, 15 and 18, respectively.

The rankings were determined by increases in domestic sales between 2019 and 2020. All retail companies with domestic sales in excess of $300 million were eligible for the list.

Here are the top 10, with sales growth from 2019 to 2020 in parentheses:

  1. Wine.com (99.4%)
  2. Overstock.com (74.7%)
  3. Boohoo Group plc (60%)
  4. Wayfair (54.6%)
  5. 1-800-Flowers.com (50.8%)
  6. Boxed.com (47%)
  7. Amazon.com (33.7%)
  8. Schwarz Group (31.8%)
  9. EG Group (30.6%)
  10. Ollie’s Bargain Outlet (28.4%)

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
