Austin, Texas (October 6th, 2011) – Austin Canoe and Kayak (ACK), a national paddlesports and outdoor retailer, is honored to have accepted the 2011 Bizrate® Circle of Excellence award for the third year in a row along with the 2011 Kayak Angler’s Choice award for Outfitter/Retailer/Kayak Fishing Supplier of the Year.

The Bizrate Circle of Excellence award recognizes those online retailers within the Bizrate Insights Network who have demonstrated outstanding performance, as rated by their customers, throughout a one-year period.

The Kayak Angler’s Choice Award, organized by KayakFishingRadio.com and YakAngler.com was designed to honor individuals, retailers, manufacturers and other organizations associated with the kayak fishing industry.

“The Circle of Excellence award is one of the most honorable awards any online retailer could receive,” said Peter Messana, Austin Canoe and Kayak CEO, “knowing that it’s a direct result of our customer’s feedback validates our commitment to a higher-level of customer service and we can’t thank them enough for their support.”

Steve Messana, Austin Canoe and Kayak President, added: “Everyone at ACK prides themselves on providing the community with exemplary service and support and both of these awards reinforce our mission and remind us how important our customers are.”

This year, only 84 online retailers received the Bizrate® Circle of Excellence award, representing 1.7% of all online retailers within the Bizrate Insights North American Retailer Network. In 2011, over 5,000 online retailers in North America were considered for the award. The ratings are from direct feedback, collected at the point-of-sale and after the delivery of goods, from customers concerning seven key satisfaction indicators.
