TWICE is pleased to announce the winners of its sixth annual Excellence in Retailing Awards.
The awards program was created to honor best-of-breed merchants in consumer electronics and major appliance retailing.
|TWICE Blogs: TWICE Presents Its Excellence In Retailing Awards |
The winners were selected by the editors of TWICE in each of five categories based on channel of distribution and business model. Those classifications are:
Best National Retailer:
Best CE/Appliance Dealer:
Best Consumer Direct Dealer
Best Vendor Retailer:
Best A/V Specialty Dealer:
Special 100th Anniversary Commemoration
Given the extraordinary challenges of the past year, financial results were weighed against the ways in which dealers' responded to the macro-economic crisis (although at least two of our winners, Amazon.com and Apple, continued to generate strong sales and earnings).
While the field of worthy candidates within some channels was formidable, the final decisions ultimately went to those merchants that embody the best in consumer electronics and major appliances retailing.
Congratulations to each of this year's winners. — The Editors
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
