***UPDATED*** Three retailers disqualified due to unqualified nominations. The next three nominees (in order of submission) were added. Several name corrections made.

 

From the editor: I'll start by saying THANKS to all of the reps, both factory and independent, who took the time to select the best our industry has to offer! You are such an important part of this industry because of your connections to our retailers and installers, and your ability to spread good ideas from one location to another. We at the magazine really appreciate you!

Now, congratulations to the Top 50 Retailers and Top 100 Installers. While this is the first step in determining the Retailers of the Year and Installer of the year, this is more importantly an award in itself. Each of the winners will receive a wall certificate with our new Industry Awards logo, and this time, we're also giving you a PDF version that you can print and put up everywhere: at each store, over your fireplace, etc. In addition, you'll get a logo set for your marketing materials and a press release you can send to your media. USE THIS STUFF to boost your business!

Finally, if you see your name misspelled or any incorrect information, send me an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so we can get it corrected before the print issue comes out and the certificates are made. 

Here we go!

Solomon Daniels, Editor-in Chief
