The study identifies the top performing retailers in 16 major retail categories including Sporting Goods. Sport Chalet was ranked number one by consumers among all retailers across the 16 categories, which spanned the specialty, luxury, discount, and online categories, as well as the top retailer in Sporting Goods. In the 2006 study, KRI conducted 6,674 web-based interviews with U.S. consumers, rating 104 of the leading retail companies to discern how well their desires are being met and identify emerging trends in the industry. The report augments the data presented in Retail Demand Insights 2006, a co-branded report between the KRI and the National Retail Federation (NRF) and sponsored by SAP Americas, which was released at the NRF's annual convention in January 2006.

We believe the success we have accomplished through our unique store concept and value-added services reflects the dedication, knowledge and enthusiasm of the entire Sport Chalet team."
