"Shoppers look to retailers that they trust to deliver great value, strong selection, quality goods, and when online, timely delivery. The BrandSpark Most Trusted Awards give shoppers a chance to see which retailers are trusted by other Canadians," said Robert Levy, President of BrandSpark International. "These endorsements are especially useful for shoppers who don't regularly shop the category - particularly in e-commerce where many shoppers are still discovering the major retail players."
More than 5,000 respondents surveyed this year determined the 2017 BrandSpark Most Trusted Awards retail winners. BrandSpark researchers analyzed the unaided responses and the reasons for trusting the retailer or service. Results were ranked based on the greatest volume of mentions, and if the difference between retailers or services nationally was less than three percent, ties were declared.
"We are incredibly proud of the accomplishment Home Hardware has made in sustaining a trusted brand over the past 53 years," says Terry Davis, CEO, Home Hardware Stores Limited. "Home Hardware has an incredible team of people who work together from coast-to-coast-to-coast to serve customers with dependable service and quality products."
