Today's the deadline to apply for inclusion in America's Best Bike Shops awards

Published March 31, 2015

COSTA MESA, Calif. (BRAIN) — Midnight Tuesday is the deadline for bike shops to apply to be considered for the 2015 America's Best Bike Shops awards, a program of the National Bicycle Dealers Association.

Applicants are measured on multiple criteria in the areas of customer service, knowledgeable staff, operational and marketing excellence, community involvement, bicycle advocacy and more.

A store representative (owner or manager) must apply by filling out a detailed application and be prepared to tell the NBDA:

  • What sets you apart from the competition?
  • How do you develop customer loyalty?
  • What you are doing to make your corner of the globe more bicycle friendly.

Once your application is reviewed, your store will then be mystery shopped by an outside group to confirm your excellence. Applicants are awarded points based on the application and shopping results, with only the highest performers being selected, and winners will be announced in Bicycle Retailer & Industry News, and honored and celebrated at the 2015 Interbike Expo in Las Vegas.

The application.
