Standing out among some of the regions best companies, The Sound Room was named the 2010 Business of the Year by the Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce at their annual awards luncheon. Marking the first time the local home audio and video specialty retailer received the award from the 900 member chamber of commerce.
“We had a great year and have been a part of the chamber for many years. Looking around at the other candidates, it makes us feel honored to be chosen,” said David Young, The Sound Room president. “The last few years have been difficult for many in our industry, with some of the biggest names going out of business.”
Many of the most effected retailers have been big-box stores and retailers not embracing change. Being a local custom home audio and video retailer has allowed The Sound Room to respond to the changing needs of their customers and stay on the cutting edge of technology. In 2010, the company added a solar division, 3D TVs and home health care automation.
“We work hard to bring value to our customers and couldn’t have done it without our expert staff,” said Young. “They truly care about giving the customer the best experience possible and work hard to stay knowledgeable about the industry.”
The Sound Room was also named no. 26 on the CE Pro magazine’s Top 100 List of custom retailers and Crestron Dealer of the Year in 2010. According to Young, the company has been able to separate itself from other integrators by keeping prices competitive and simply giving customers the best advice possible.
