TWICE Announces 2009 Excellence In Retailing Winners


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.

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 Buy Upbeat On Holiday Prospects

Best CE/Appliance Dealer:

hhgregg Cops Second Consecutive Win In CE/Majap Category

Best Consumer Direct Dealer Reclaims The Best Consumer Direct Award

Best Vendor Retailer:

Apple Stores Takes Best Vendor Award

Best A/V Specialty Dealer:

Starpower Takes 2nd A/V Specialty Nod

Special 100th Anniversary Commemoration

P.C. Richard Marks 100th Anniversary

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, 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
