Winchester Ammunition Presents Dealer Of The Year Award To Green Top Sporting Goods

Orlando, FL – Winchester® Ammunition presented the 2008 Dealer of the Year Award to Green Top Sporting Goods during the 2009 SHOT Show in Orlando.

Each year, Winchester Ammunition recognizes a dealer who sets a high standard in sales and promotions. Green Top Sporting Goods, located in Glen Allen, Va., meets Winchester Ammunition’s standards of excellence.

For more than 60 years, Green Top has provided those who love the outdoors with a huge inventory of top name products and expert advice from people who love to hunt, fish and experience the outdoors.

“We are honored to be named the Dealer of the Year from Winchester Ammunition,” said Pat Hopkins, Vice President of Green Top Sporting Goods. “When Green Top began carrying firearm and ammunition related products in the 1950s, Winchester Ammunition was one of the first companies to come onboard and it has truly been an honor to carry such time-honored products. We value the opportunity we have to work with the Winchester staff and their friendly customer service, their ammunition experience and their aggressiveness to put out top quality products.”

Retailers who achieve this recognition maintain high standards for customer service and product knowledge and promote the Winchester brand through advertising, sales promotion and merchandising. They carry a complete line of Winchester products, conduct retail events, support industry programs and actively support local efforts in various areas like conservation, safety, and hunter education.

In 1989, Winchester Ammunition set the benchmark for partnering with independent dealers with the inception of the Winchester Ammunition Advisory Center program, and 20 years later, it continues to set the standard for dealer programs. To be nominated for the Dealer of the Year, a company must participate in this program.
