Bolingbrook, Illinois (PRWEB) May 16, 2014
Today Power Equipment Direct announced its inclusion in the Internet Retailer's Top 500 list for the seventh consecutive year.
"In 2013, Power Equipment Direct did a lot of hard work to improve the shopping experience across all sites," said founder & president, Jon Hoch. "Incorporating the voice of the customer has played a large part in our success."
The online power equipment retailer ranked as the 198th largest e-retail company in the United States and the seventh largest e-tailer in the hardware/home improvement category.
Internet Retailer's definitive ranking and analysis of America's 500 largest e-retailers is based on annual Internet sales, researched by Internet Retailer and confirmed by retailers. This report includes company financial, operational and performance data, as well as vendors in key categories.
Hoch founded Power Equipment Direct in his basement after an awful experience shopping for a lawn mower in 2002. Today, the Bolingbrook, IL-based e-commerce company operates thirteen niche web stores.
"We consider it an honor to be ranked among the largest home improvement retailers in the world," said Hoch. "The results are remarkable, considering we only sell power equipment products."
