Apply For The 2015 Tire Review Top Shop Awards

Call For Entries: 2015 Tire Review Top Shop Awards Opens

Top-Shop-LogoThe entry period for the 2015 Tire Review Top Shop Awards is open and will run through June 5. Now in its ninth year, the industry-leading Top Shop Awards program seeks to honor the “best of the best” independent tire dealers in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

Entry forms and information are now available online exclusively at the Top Shop Awards Web site at tirereview.com/topshop. Complete entries can be made right online.

The Tire Review Top Shop Awards spotlight independent tire dealers – retail, commercial or wholesale – that epitomize the attributes and values stressed in every issue of Tire Review: exemplary customer service and retention, training and education, merchandising and promotion, professional standards and conduct, innovation, appearance, business management, community involvement, business growth, achievement and innovation.

All of the winners and finalists are profiled on the Tire Review website and in a special Top Shop section of Tire Review’s magazine.

“It is a credit to the quality of dealers honored by this program that the Top Shop Awards have earned the respect of everyone in the tire industry, and have clearly become the premier honor for North American tire dealers,” said Jim Smith, editor of Tire Review magazine. “Every participant, not just the Winners or Finalists, tell us how important the honor is to the industry and how grateful they are that there is a program that recognizes the success and accomplishments of dealers of all sizes and types.”

Dealers can nominate their own businesses, or others can nominate tire dealer businesses. The entry process is simple: Those making the nomination need to provide basic information about the dealership being nominated and write a short (300-word maximum) essay explaining why that dealership should be considered.

Information about 2015 prizes will be announced later.
