2013 FREDDY Award Winners
West Grove, PA.: Dansko announced its annual FREDDY award winners, recognizing three independent shoe stores for creating an exceptional merchandising experience in-store. The nationwide initiative offered awards for three categories: implementing an effective Dansko sales event, designing a creative, on-brand window or tabletop display and configuring an original, brand-oriented slatwall.

“Dansko values its retail partners and recognizes that independent retail stores are critical to our sales strategy,” said Mark Diehl, Dansko Senior Vice President of Sales. “Our award winners demonstrated exceptional creativity and thoughtfulness, encouraging their consumers to think about Dansko in new and meaningful ways. We’re privileged to celebrate each of their efforts with FREDDY Awards for retail excellence.”

Members of the Dansko Marketing and Sales teams selected winners based on photo submissions received from Dansko retailers nationwide, with one independent store honored in each category.
