Carole Sloan -- Home Textiles Today, March 7, 2013
Boston - Joss & Main, the private sale site for home furnishings and decor, released a list of the top 10 U.S. cities based on mobile sales of home goods over the past six months.
With the U.S. Department of Commerce reporting a 16% increase in new home sales in January and house sales at a four and a half year high, Joss & Main said it is seeing a direct correlation between the uptick in the housing market and its rapidly growing revenue and membership.
The two-year old flash sale retailer exceeded 3 million members earlier this year with membership growing in its top 10 markets at an average rate of 40%. Reporting a 70% increase in mobile revenue during the month of January, mobile sales now make up 30% of revenue for Joss & Main.
"Positive signs in the housing market are undoubtedly driving increased consumer interest in Joss & Main - we hear it all the time when we speak with our members," said John Mulliken, co-founder and general manager of Joss & Main.
The retailer's top 10 cities with the highest share of sales on mobile devices, in order:
- Las Vegas
- San Antonio
