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 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
