Dealerscope's 2011 Retail Excellence Award Winners
If there's a common theme to this year's Retail Excellence Awards winners, it's their investment in change. Each of their stories provides a case study into how insight, action and focus can combine to create an element or strategy that's beneficial to both the retailer and the overall CE industry.
See the Related Content tab for profiles of the five winners.
Start with The ON Store, George Manlove's new venture, which borrows several elements from the Apple Stores but adds a few of its own to create a standout retail experience among independent dealers. There's now one in Missoula, Mont., but Manlove, who also serves as CEO of Vann's, has plans for 12 more in the near future. Ultimately, he envisions 600. Given his track record, we have no reason to doubt him.
