Prominent multisport website Slowtwitch.com has released its list of the top 50 multisport retailers in the U.S., the Slowtwitch 50, and Peabody based Fit Werx 2, Road and Triathlon Cycling Specialists, has been named to the list.
According to Dan Emfield, Slowtwitch’s Publisher, “It’s a list of the top 50 retailers in the United States who, during 2012, most expertly serviced the sport of triathlon with retail goods, according to their vendors.”
Fit Werx Co-owner, Marty Miserandino said, “We are honored to be named as one of the top 50 multisport retailers in the entire country. We really enjoy, and take pride in, working with our all of our clients, both Road and Triathlon cyclists, so it’s nice to be recognized for excellence.”
According to Bicycle Retailer (www.bicycleretailer.com), “Empfield said suppliers — manufacturers and in some cases their distributors — represented 85 percent of the voting weight to determine the top shops. Fifteen percent of a retailer’s score weight was accumulated through: 1) the total number of customers choosing that store as their preferred shopping location; 2) the aggregated rating by end-users across 10 criteria; and 3), the breadth of that store’s offerings, brands, brand categories, tools, certifications and accreditations.”
