As Retail Sales Fall Nationwide, Christmas Central Sees Profits and Sales Grow

August 18, 2014



Buffalo,NY (PRWEB) August 18, 2014

During the first 7 months of 2014, most traditional brick and mortar stores saw a decrease in sales up to 12%. In contrast, during the same period, Christmas Central, an e-commerce retailer, reported an increase in both sales and profits. Compared to the same period in 2013, the online retailer has a 60% month-to-month increase.

Located just outside of Buffalo, NY, Christmas Central was able to leverage their online business model into growth. By primarily functioning online, Christmas Central was able to keep their doors open for orders 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Customers were able to place their orders all day and night. A wide variety of merchandise gives the website a diversified portfolio of products providing merchandise for every season.

Building off the successful winter and spring months, Christmas Central has benefited from their expansive home dÉcor and patio furniture to keep the momentum through the summer.

Continually in an expansion mode, the retailer has been able to add more permanent positions to their company both in the office and warehouse. In a region starving for growth, Christmas Central has become a bastion of consistent growth and success.

Christmas Central plans to add even more positions as they head into the fourth quarter. Optimism is high that the fourth quarter will be a record setter for the company. This Christmas season, traditionally the strongest time of year for the home dÉcor company, forecasts to sustain this high level of growth through the end of 2014 and beyond.

"We are extremely proud of our company," Nathan Gordon, CIO said. "Our ability to grow quarter after quarter gives us the opportunity to add more people to our company. [Christmas Central is] able to be a strong force in improving the economics of Western New York."
