“The winners of this year’s Top 100 Competition demonstrate the commitment of Powersports dealerships to their customer base,” says Mary Slepicka, editorial director of Dealernews and director of the competition. “Judges awarded high marks not so much for what a store has, but what a store is doing with it, and how well it understands its customer base and community.”

Each dealer is chosen based on retail design and merchandising, marketing and promotion, dedication to customer service, community involvement, and internal work environment.

Also receiving this award alongside Charlie’s Harley-Davidson, in the state of West Virginia, is Cole Harley-Davidson in Bluefield.

Charlie’s Harley-Davidson has been in business for two years at 408 4th St. in Huntington, providing customers with quality customer services on motorcycle sales, service, parts and accessories, diner and apparel and riding gear.
