Eagles Nest Outfitters’s innovative SingleNest was recognized for its appeal in the industry by a panel of distinguished retailers at the 2013 National Hardware Show®.
Asheville, NC – Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO), the original producer of camping and travel parachute hammocks, was honored by the North American Retail Hardware Association (NRHA) as one of the most innovative products on today’s market. The SingleNest Hammock was acknowledged during the Retailers’ Choice Awards Ceremony at the National Hardware Show® in Las Vegas in May of this year.
This nation-wide event presents a variety of awards to recognize new products, honors, and innovations in the hardware, homewares, and lawn & garden industry. The Retailers’ Choice Awards singles out the best of the best products at the National Hardware Show.
“It is a huge honor and surprise to get this award,” said Bobby Jackson, Sales Manager at ENO. “We love the hardware show and the hardware market, so we’re stoked to be getting noticed.”
Unlike other awards given at this event, a Retailers’ Choice Award is given by a panel of acclaimed retailers who buy and sell products for a living, rather than by editors. The recipients of these awards are not only honored for their innovation but are also singled out for retailers to check out.
“Home improvement retailers and consumers love new products, and the Retailers’ Choice Awards program recognizes those selected by a panel of retailers they feel are unique, interesting and hold a great promise for sales in their stores,” said Dan Tratensek, NRHA’s vice president of publishing and publisher of Hardware Retailing magazine.
Other products honored during the Retailers’ Choice Awards Ceremony are the No-Stud TV Hanger by Hangman, FrogLeggs Eyewear Retainer by FrogLeggs Inc, Steelie Car Mount by Nite Ize, Heat Holder Socks by Grabber, and Reach ‘N Spray by Bosque Products.
