Motherly devotion paid off for entrepreneur and company founder Alan Gladstone. Anna's Linens (which is named after Gladstone's mother, Anna) is a specialty retailer of discounted home furnishings, including bed linens, kitchen textiles, area rugs, window coverings, bath accessories, and housewares. The company's stores average about 10,000 sq. ft., but larger spaces (some are more than 100,000 sq. ft.) allow it to experiment with its lineup of home décor offerings. Founded in 1988, the fast-growing retailer operates more than 300 locations in nearly 20 states as well as an online store. Chairman, president, and CEO Gladstone envisions Anna's Linens eventually growing to 1,000 storefronts nationwide.
