Lafargue Pianos in Metairie, Louisiana has been named a Top 100 Dealer by the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM), the global association of music products and music retailers. The organization recently recognized Lafargue Pianos at the Top 100 Dealer Awards event held as part of the 2016 Summer NAMM Show in Nashville, Tennessee.
Lafargue Pianos was selected by a discerning panel of judges as one of the very best among music retailers,” said Joe Lamond, NAMM President and CEO. “This special recognition signifies Lafargue Pianos commitment to providing an excellent retail experience for their customers, helping people of all ages discover the joys and benefits of making music, and to fostering a positive musical experience for their community at large.”
Dubbed the ‘retail Oscars’ by Music Inc. magazine, NAMM’s Top 100 Dealer Awards spotlights the industry’s very best music product retailers. To determine the list, an independent panel of judges reviewed hundreds of submissions that are rated across categories that include customer service, music advocacy, store design, and promotions and are scored in accordance to determine the Top 100 list.
“We are humbled and pleased to be recognized by NAMM as one of the 100 top dealers in the United States,” said Lance Lafargue, president of Lafargue Pianos. “Our staff works very hard to provide the right musical equipment and service to our customers and we share this prestigious award with all of those who have helped make our company the special place that it is.”
NAMM’s award comes on the heels of Lafargue Pianos being recognized earlier this year by Yamaha as “Outstanding Dealer of the Year.”
