After the third consecutive year of nomination, HOM Furniture and its WORLD RUG galleries announced that it was named 2008 Rug Retailer of the Year. The Retailer of the Year (ROY) nominees were selected by AmericasMart area rug exhibitors and were voted on by an independent panel of industry experts. The award was presented by AmericasMart and the Oriental Rug Retailers of America on July 14 at the Annual ROY Awards Ceremony which recognizes leaders that are making a significant impact on the entire industry. “The area rug industry is only as strong as the retailers that support it on a daily basis, and we are grateful that we are able to be surrounded by such established leaders,” said Chas Sydney, senior vice president of Area Rugs for AmericasMart. “The nominees and winners are exceptional players in our industry, and it is because of their dedication and commitment to customers and the industry as a whole that we are able to continue thriving together.” About HOM Furniture and WORLD RUGS: HOM Furniture has been a family-owned business for over 30 years, and has evolved into the complete home furnishings retailer that it is today.
