SANTA ANA, CA, May 14, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Leading online appliance retailer, Air & Water, Inc., today announced that it has been named in the 2010 Internet Retailer Top 500 list. This will be Air & Water's first year on the prestigious list, and the company debuts at number 464 out of 500 for web sales. In addition, Air & Water has been ranked number 19 in the Hardware/Home Improvement category.
The recent success of Air & Water
is due in large part to the successes of its marketing and sales divisions. Founded in 2002 in Orange County, California by Luke Peters, the store primarily offered only heating and cooling products. However, in 2009 the company expanded its product selection to include a more diverse product mix. According to reports, the company saw tremendous growth in 2009, with 2010 looking just as strong. At its current pace, Air & Water seems prepared to continue its steady rise among the ranks of the Internet Retailer Top 500 for many years to come.
"Debuting on the Internet Retailer 500 is such an outstanding achievement for us," said Luke Peters, president of Air & Water, Inc. "We're also very proud of the fact that we were ranked #19 in the Hardware/Home Improvement category. This honor can be credited to our employees' dedication to providing customers with the best products at a great value, and to our customers who trust us with their home appliance needs."
Internet Retailer's definitive ranking and analysis of America's 500 largest e-retailers is based on annual 2009 Internet sales, researched by Internet Retailer and confirmed by retailers. This report includes company financial, operational and performance data, as well as vendors in key categories.
"Heating, cooling, and purification products weren't on every consumer's shopping list last year, but Air & Water managed to grow their web sales and land at No. 464 because their detailed product guides and consistent pricing registered with shoppers," says Internet Retailer editor-in-chief Kurt Peters.
