The National Bicycle Dealers Association launched a new program in 2013 that rates bicycle stores in North America against the highest performance levels in the industry, with the goal of identifying and promoting America's Best Bike Shops.
America's Best Bike Shops celebrates excellence in bicycle retailing with measurable criteria in the areas of: customer service, knowledgeable staff, operational excellence, marketing excellence, community involvement, and bicycle advocacy.
Selected recipients are announced in the fall edition of Bicycle Retailer And Industry News magazine and honored at a reception at the Interbike bicycle trade expo at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV.
Promotional material is provided to the shops recognized to assist in advertising to their communities that they have been acknowledged as leaders in the industry.
Thank you for choosing to apply for the title of America’s Best Bike Shop; a recognition that demonstrates excellence in the bicycle industry.
The deadline for submissions is March 31, 2014.
