White Paper: Omnichannel integrates all aspects of retail

Omnichannel Retail is Essential and More Than Marketing, Sales

“We’re excited to welcome AWS into Nation’s Best,” said Chris Miller, president & CEO of Nation’s Best. “While our acquisitions to date have been focused on home centers and hardware stores, AWS provides us a unique opportunity to enhance our window and door offerings across all our locations nationwide, while capturing even more sales in the Dallas-Fort Worth market.”

AWS has been providing high end residential and commercial windows and doors to contractors and homeowners for new construction and renovation projects for more than 20 years. In the transition to Nation’s Best, owner Steve Johnson will retire but his sons Dustin and Seth and son-in-law Mitch Raymond will continue in their leadership roles in the business. “AWS has done an outstanding job of being a leader in the market when it comes to quality and service for premium construction and renovation projects,” said Miller. “Now, we’ll be able to leverage their expertise and vendor relationships in the door and window product segments while extending their reach to all our other locations. We see tremendous opportunities to grow the business across the Nation’s Best platform, strengthening all of our individual brands as we drive more sales across the country.”

“I first heard about Nation’s Best through my connection with Groom & Sons’ Home Center, another acquisition of theirs,” said Steve Johnson. “I learned that they share the same values as our family business, putting our team and customers first. I’m confident that our move to Nation’s Best will put AWS and its associates in an even greater position for growth.”
