La-Z-Boy names Moussa No. 1

 19 May 2014      

MONROE, Michigan (20 May 2014) - The three Canadian retailers who own five of the top ten La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries stores in North America were saluted for their hard work at last month's spring edition of the High Point Market. One was even ranked number one across the entire chain.

"La-Z-Boy's position as the most recognized home furnishings brand is solidified by the dedication and hard-work of our stores," Mark Bacon, president of La-Z-Boy's branded business, said in a statement.  "Once a year at this special ceremony we reflect on the stores' great accomplishments and applaud them for their commitment to our brand."

Today, the La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries network consists of 312 both corporately-owned and licensed stores located throughout the United States and Canada. Some 32 licensed stores operate north of the border.

Five of the top ten performing La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries Stores in North America are located in Canada - four in Alberta and one in Ontario.

Among those recognised as members of the top ten, based on total sales for 2013 include: Mohammed Moussa, owner of the two La-Z-Bay stores in Edmonton; Cam Davidson, owner of outlets in both Calgary and Winnipeg; and, Paul and Heather Hogeboom, owners of eight stores in Ontario.

Moussa's store on 101st Street in Edmonton was ranked number one among La-Z-Boy's all of its stores across North America. His store on 109th Street was ranked at number five. Last year, these stores held down spots number three and four respectively.

Davidson's store on 11th Street S.E. in Calgary was ranked number two while his store in the Northland's area of Calgary was ranked at number four, up one slot from last year. The 11th Street store was ranked in the number one last year and was also the first La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries store to open in Canada. It consisted ranked at number one or two over the past few years.

He is also expected to open the largest La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries store in North America sometime this month. It will be built in Calgary's CrossIron Common retail power centre.
