PRINCETON, NJ Stores and Shopping Guide Announcements

The Farmhouse Store Princeton Honored for Excellence by Home Accents Today Magazine

June 29, 2017, Greensboro, N.C. — Home furnishings and design source The Farmhouse Store in Princeton has been named one of Home Accents Today’s 50 Retail Stars for 2017 by editors of the premier trade magazine for the home accents industry.


The Retail Stars list, now in its 13th year, recognizes independent brick-and-mortar retailers of home accents – including furniture stores and interior design boutiques – that are creative in their merchandising, have a positive presence in their local communities and are distinguishing themselves from the competition.


The Farmhouse Store Princeton is owned by Kristin and Ron Menapace and is located in Palmer Square, at 34 Hulfish Street, Princeton, NJ. 

"Home Accents Today's 2017 Retail Stars represent some of the best independent home decor and home furnishings retailers in the country," said Susan Dickenson, the magazine’s editor in chief. "They are meeting the challenges of an ever-changing retail environment with innovation and fortitude, and are true role models for their marketing and merchandising strategies, customer service and community contributions. This annual honor recognizes their skills, hard work and dedication, and should serve as a reminder to us all to support local businesses.”

This year’s list was compiled and narrowed down by research analysts and Thomas Lester, Home Accents Today’s business editor.  “Getting to share the stories behind these stores is one of the most satisfying parts of assembling this year’s Retail Stars list,” Lester said. “Each of these retailers truly represents the fabric of their respective communities and we’re glad to have the opportunity to give them the recognition they richly deserve.”


Twenty-seven U.S. states are represented on this year’s list and The Farmhouse Store Princeton is the only store honored in New Jersey.
