    • On November 12, 2015, it was reported, as Conn's prepares to open its 100th store in Las Vegas this week, new President and CEO Norm Miller signaled the Top 100 company's aggressive, national expansion strategy is just beginning. Fueled by a furniture and mattress business that's accounting for a steadily increasing percentage of overall sales and driving the company's product gross profit, Conn's is on track to open 17 to 18 stores this fiscal year (ending in January), 20 to 25 the next year through January 2017, and then even greater numbers beyond that date as it targets new markets across the nation with hundreds of stores. Miller couldn't speak to new markets or the exact timing and cadence of the store rollout, but said, "We clearly see the opportunity for at least 500 stores nationally," and "I don't expect that to take 15 years." "So we would have to grow at a faster pace than 25 stores a year to get there," he said. In just a few short years, Conn's has transformed itself from the credit oriented retailer known primarily for its assortment of appliances and electronics to a full-fledged, home furnishings powerhouse with furniture and mattress sales leading the growth parade.
