100% Appliances wins People's Choice Award for top retailers

13 Nov 15

100% Appliances has won Consumer NZ’s 2015 People’s Choice Award for top retailers.

The company, along with hardware and DIY store Mitre 10, was named People’s Choice based on feedback from nearly 10,000 Consumer NZ members who rated shops on price, range and point of sale and after sale service.

Consumer NZ says comments about home appliance and technology retailer 100% Appliances included “Brilliant service and very helpful.” “Took time to explain differences between products. Did not push.”

Consumer says both 100% Appliances and Mitre 10 rated well across all areas of the survey.

The awards were launched this year to make it easy for people to recognise products, services and businesses that performed strongly in member satisfaction surveys.

Sue Chetwin, Consumer NZ chief executive, says 100% Appliances beat out much bigger stores in just about every category.

100% Appliances said it was specially honoured to receive a Consumer NZ People’s Choice award as it was recognition from those who meant most – loyal customers.
