CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y., Aug. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Inc. magazine today ranked Christmas Central NO. 4537 on its 35th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy's most dynamic segment— its independent small businesses.
Christmas Central enjoyed a 3-year growth of 55% with revenue of $25.5 million in 2015.
Owned-and-operated by the Gordon family, Christmas Central is a national online leader in seasonal and home décor. Christmas Central offers 150,000 SKUS, including 30,000 SKUS that ship directly from its Cheektowaga warehouses, through major U.S. marketplaces and its own website Christmascentral.com.
"We are proud to make the 2016 list, and honored to be named among the top private companies in the country," said Nathan Gordon, CIO of Christmas Central. "Our strategic growth initiative has included the expansion to major marketplaces, technological advances in our warehousing and inventory, and better product selection and manufacturer relationships. We believe the additional planned investments to Christmascentral.com will continue to propel the company's growth."
In addition to the 2016 ranking, Christmas Central made the list in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014. Ranking 2177, 1455, 2179, and 3107 respectively.
"This mention is especially important to us after the difficult year following the 2014 November storm that destroyed one of our warehouses. To come back from that event with strong growth shows our commitment to ensuring the highest delivery standards for our customers. We thank them for their continued support and promise to continually deliver quality seasonal and home décor products with the highest standards."
"The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts," says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. "It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That's one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails."
