Royal furniture stores and furniture stores across the US are on the rise in 2017 as shoppers seek quality, a new survey from RetailMeNot shows.
The retailer surveyed 874 retail employees in May and June and found that sales of Royal furniture are up 7.3 percent over the same period last year.
The number of Royal Furniture stores has doubled in the past year, from 6,945 stores to 10,834 in the period.
The study found that the percentage of retail workers who are willing to travel to a store to purchase furniture has risen from 29.6 percent in May to 35.1 percent in June, the highest level in six months.
A large number of stores are still opening during the summer, and many stores still sell their furniture from the same warehouse as the rest of the store.
In May, more than 20 percent of Royal’s stores were open, up from 13.5 percent in April.
The majority of Royal employees are younger than 30, the study found.
More: The survey also found that Royal has made a series of strategic moves in recent years.
The company recently opened new locations in several major cities, and has announced a $1 billion capital investment in its first store.
A new $10 million building is being built in a warehouse in Atlanta.
Royal also announced the expansion of its website and announced plans to open a new office next year.
It will also hire 500 people.
The store will also open a third warehouse in North Carolina.
Royal is also taking steps to open up the company’s inventory more quickly.
In addition to new locations, Royal is adding new brands to its products.
In February, it announced the launch of its first-ever luxury line, featuring a line of clothing, shoes and accessories that will sell for $600.
The line is the result of more than 10 years of work with a global sourcing team that includes international brands like Nike, Puma, and Nike+, a partnership between Royal and a third-party shoe brand.
