Four winners of the AVB Makeover Store Edition contest were announced in a statement today. The AVB believes that it’s easy for merchants to overlook their showrooms in the recent focus on all things digital, and the buying group created the contest to give their members a chance to change and update their aging storefronts.
“This isn’t just a great opportunity for the winners and their customers,” said Jim Ristow, CEO of BrandSource/AVB. “The store remodels will inspire other members to invest in showroom updates that, following our Makeover system, can be implemented very economically.”
The renovations are to be performed by an outside contractor, and will target key design areas such as lighting, flooring, signage and a fresh coat of paint. All AVB members will receive an easy-to-execute refresh guide based on the Makeover takeaways to assist them in looking for ways to update their showrooms.
The winners of the contest are:
• Lyle’s TV and Appliance of Elkhorn, Wis.
• Millar’s Appliance of Bay City, Mich.
• Riester’s Appliances of Auburn, N.Y.
• Broadview Appliance of Oak Harbor, Wash.
