THE BUSINESSES AND PROFESSIONALS NOMINATED


Thanks to the “Win Your Pool or Spa” contest, the businesses and professionals nominated for the “Retailer, Vendor, and Installer of the Year” awards in the above-ground pools, inground pools and spas categories, as well as the nominees for the “Home Pool and Spa Safety Retailer of the Year”, were chosen. Remember that the businesses and professionals were chosen by the best judges in the market—the consumers! In addition to having the chance to win a full reimbursement of their purchase, consumers (who evaluated their overall buying experience) allow the industry to recognize the most successful businesses and professionals among ACPQ member retailers. The winning businesses and professionals, as well as the consumer who has won the reimbursement of his purchase, will be revealed during the ACPQ Excellence Gala next November 22.

* Since some of the names of the salespeople and installers evaluated were unknown, and (or) due to the consumers’ inability to identify them, it is the overall performance of each merchant’s sales team or installer team that was first taken into consideration. Afterwards, the highest score was used to determine the best salesperson or the best installer, usually highly praised by the consumers, among the team members.
