    KTJ Design Co is honored for excellence by Home Accents Today magazine
    May 18, 2020, Greensboro, N.C. — Home furnishings and design source KTJ Design Co, in Stockton, California has been named one of Home Accents Today’s Retail Stars for 2020 by editors of the premier trade magazine for the home accents industry.
    The Retail Stars list, sponsored by AmericasMart Atlanta and Las Vegas Market, publishes each year in Home Accents Today’s May issue. Members of the home furnishings industry are invited to suggest stores, and retailers are encouraged to submit information describing their businesses. This year’s list was compiled and narrowed down by research analysts and Thomas Lester, Home Accents Today’s digital & managing editor.
    KTJ Design Co, owned by Kathleen Jennison, is at 404 N. Harrison St., Stockton, CA 95204.
    The Retail Stars list, now in its 16th year, recognizes independent brick-and-mortar retailers of home accents —  including furniture stores, home accessories boutique stores and interior design showrooms — that merchandise creatively, have a positive presence in their local communities and stand out from the competition.
    "Home Accents Today's 2020 Retail Stars list showcases some of the best independent home décor and home furnishings retailers in the country," said Lester. "While retail faces severe challenges due to the coronavirus crisis, we believe these stores are among those that will step up and up with safe and creative ways to revitalize their business as shutdown restrictions gradually lift. This honor recognizes their skills, hard work and dedication, and should serve as a reminder to us all to support local businesses.”
    This year’s class comes from 32 states. Five Stars call California home, while four are based in Illinois and three each are from Texas and Florida. Missouri, Utah, New York, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Indiana and Washington lay claim to two Stars’ hometowns.
