Ristal breaks into the Inc. 500!
"It's very exciting to be included in Inc. Magazine's list of the fastest growing companies in the United States," says Rick Steele, founder and CMO of Ristal. "Being named in the list is a great reward for the hard work and dedication of our employees, and it speaks volumes about Internet retailing"
The Inc. 500 list measures revenue growth from 2003 through 2006. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by the first week of 2003, and therefore able to show four full calendar years of sales. Additionally, they had to be U.S.-based, privately held, and independent as of December 31, 2006.
Ristal's flagship Web site, SelectBlinds.com, sells a superior line of blinds, shades and window fashions seen every week on the hit ABC show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. SelectFans.com offers a wide range of ceiling fan options from leading manufacturers, while SelectRugs.com showcases a wide variety of area rug styles and brands. The websites combine the meticulous experience of offline shopping with the ease and efficiency of online ordering.
"Our virtual stores are intensely customer-centric, designed to make shopping online as easy and comfortable as possible," says Steele. "Even in the e-marketplace, those basic tenets of customer service still hold strong, and they are behind our success and our entry into the Inc. 500."
