The Eagle Music shop in Armitage Bridge, Yorkshire, in the UK has been presented an award for the sixth year in a row for selling a record number of banjos. Though I'm just catching up to the news now, the award was presented in November.
The prescription bluegrass blog writes:
Having officially sold over two thousand Deering Banjos, more than any other retailer worldwide, Eagle have set a benchmark within the traditional music retail industry. The award is also in recognition of Eagle’s unrelenting dedication to customer service.
Founder of Eagle Music Shop and seasoned musician Steve Noon stated: “When you consider that Deering are the largest banjo manufacturer in the world, having over 350 Dealerships throughout America and the rest of the world, it puts it into perspective what our UK business has achieved in the world of banjos”.
