Today is the final day to enter the 2012 Tire Review Top Shop Awards presented by Ammco/Coats, which seeks to honor the “best of the best” independent tire dealers in the U.S. and Canada.

End entries will be accepted until midnight. Entry forms and prize information are available online at

The Tire Review Top Shop Award contest spotlights independent tire dealers that epitomize exemplary customer service and retention, training and education, merchandising and promotion, professional standards and conduct, appearance, solid business management, community involvement, growth and achievement.

“Clearly, the Top Shop Awards are now considered the premier honor for North American tire dealers,” said Jim Smith, editor of Tire Review magazine. “Countless tire dealers from across the continent tell us how much winning this award would mean to their businesses. Past winners and finalists – to a person – have been excited and honored to participate in this program. And everyone participating appreciates the fact that the Top Shop Awards is for dealers of all sizes and types. It’s not about being the biggest or being well-known. It’s about being the best of the best.”

“We are extremely honored and excited to continue as the presenting sponsor for the Top Shop Awards,” said Kevin Keefe, vice president of marketing for Ammco/Coats, which has served as the presenting sponsor of the program since its inception. “For the last five years, the Top Shop Awards have brought much-deserved recognition to some highly successful businesses in our industry. The response from tire dealers to this award program has been tremendous, and that speaks volumes about how much dealers want to succeed to delivering for their customers.”

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.
