Excerpts from IER magazines' article on ROTY 2014

"Now in its 16th year the Retailer of the Year (ROTY) survey is an incredibly accurate barometer of individual stores’ performance. Well over 100,000 surveys are sent out to customers following a major purchase, such as a TV or washing machine. Customers that are not mailed rate their retailer directly on an online survey. The survey is incentivised with the prize that two lucky respondents will win the cost of their appliance back."
"The hotly contested Internet Retailer of the Year 2014 went to Marks Electrical in Leicester."

"Internet Retailer of the Year was introduced to the survey in 2006 and the award has been shared by only a handful of exceptional retailers. "
"This year’s winner, Marks Electrical, has been runner up in this category for the previous three years, finally winning out over rivals thanks to the site’s superb ease of navigation and in-depth information, as well as the store’s outstanding delivery service. Across all three of these survey questions, Marks scored an average of over 9.3/10, rating above even the likes of the mighty Amazon."
