LAGUNA HILLS, CA (BRAIN)—It’s hard to believe but Interbike is just around the corner. And this year, for the second time, Bicycle Retailer & Industry News will announce its Top 100 Retailers for 2010 at the industry’s leading North American trade show.
We plan to host a special reception for the Top 100 at 4 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 22. The Top 100 receive special badges and other benefits while attending Interbike. A listing of the Top 100 will be found in the first Show Daily. A complete profile of each retailer and store will be part of a special section in the November issue of the magazine.
To improve our sample of the nation’s best retailers, this year, for the first time, we are soliciting nominations industry-wide. We will include those nominations with our annual retail survey done by Boulder Sports Research, creating a larger pool of nominees.
This is our fourth year to select the nation’s best, but many have asked us to open up the process so that retailers, especially those in smaller town or who own smaller shops, have a greater opportunity to participate in the process.
We have included a nominating form for you to submit. We encourage all suppliers, distributors, advocacy groups and retailers who want to nominate a potential Top 100 retailer to fill out the form and send it in.
