Internet Retailer recognizes a select number of e-commerce Web sites each year for their innovative approaches to online retailing. Last December, Americaneagle.com proudly celebrated the recognition of client Chiasso (www.chiasso.com) as one of the Top 50 Retailing sites for 2007 in Internet Retailer’s annual selection of "Best of the Web." This came shortly after Americaneagle.com gave Chiasso’s online storefront a major overhaul. To read more about Chiasso, click here.
For 2008, Internet Retailer has expanded its Best of the Web from 50 sites to 100 sites, due to the growing number of outstanding e-commerce Web sites. Among the "Hot 100" selected by Internet Retailer was Americaneagle.com client Snow Blowers Direct (www.snowblowersdirect.com). As a leading online snowblower superstore, Snow Blowers Direct was selected as a pace-setting Hot 100 Web site following a complete redesign by Americaneagle.com. Kurt T. Peters, editor in chief of Internet Retailer noted, "Retailers in our Hot 100 represent the range of online retailing, from small to large, and include chains, catalogers, online-only merchants and brand name manufacturers. They have in common the willingness to innovate and set the standards in online retailing for what the rest of the industry should be doing."
