OREGON – Ukulele Station America has been named a Top 100 Dealer by the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM), the global association of music products and music retailers.
The award honors retail music dealers who demonstrate exceptional commitment to their stores, neighborhoods and customers, and share in a vision to create a more musical world through their local communities. The award will be presented at the industry’s annual mid-year gathering, Summer NAMM, on Friday, June 30 in Nashville, Tenn.
“We are thrilled to be recognized by the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM),” said John Lindhorst, owner of Ukulele Station America. “It is especially amazing to have received this honor for three consecutive years.”
Dubbed the ‘retail Oscars’ by Music Inc. magazine, NAMM’s Top 100 Dealer Awards spotlight the industry’s very best music product retailers. To determine the list, an independent panel of judges reviewed hundreds of submissions that are rated across categories that include customer service, music advocacy, store design, and promotions and are scored in accordance to determine the Top 100 list.
In addition to its honor as a Top 100 Dealer, Ukulele Station America will be in consideration to receive a “Best Of” award in one of seven categories: Customer Service, Emerging Dealer/Rookie of the Year, Store Design, Marketing and Sales Promotion, Online Engagement, Store Turnaround, and one recipient will be honored with the Music Makes a Difference award. The coveted Dealer of the Year award will go to one of the recipients in the aforementioned categories.
