2015 ‘Orvis Dealer of the Year’ Award Finalist Announcement
With over 525 US domestic independent
retailers and an additional 250+ around the world from Canada to Japan
and all points in between its not an easy decision picking the winner of
this prestigious award. We have a very loyal and diverse group of
excellent retailers that do an outstanding job selling our product and
exposing the Orvis brand. This is an award not solely based on sales
volume or product purchased. It includes the independent retailers
support of the Orvis brand overall, product merchandising, credit
rating, participation in Orvis programs such as ELOG, or FF101. In
addition, and one of the more important criteria is how the retailer is
view by their customer base. In other words, how do consumers rate the
business overall, as customer service is paramount to success. Our three 2015 finalists are: - Unicoi Outfitters, Helen, GA. - Fins & Feathers, Bozeman, MT. - Breckenridge Outfitters, Breckenridge, CO.
