Execution
Footwear Insight, working with Franklin Retail Solutions, mystery shops and rates top footwear specialty stores in the United States.
Each store will be graded on more than 23 criteria (beginning with the greeting and extending through the fitting process, selection, all the way through to checkout). The scores are processed and the top stores are recognized in a special report published in Footwear Insight. The store with the highest score will be featured on the cover. This is a highly read feature as stores see how they measured up against the criteria and the other top stores in the country. Each store that achieves the Gold Medal Service Award recognition will receive promotional signage and a social media toolkit recognizing its achievement so it can promote that honor to its customers and their community.

Have a store you'd like to nominate? Email Us.
Mystery shopping of stores will begin early fall. Winners announced in late fall.
Featured in Footwear Insight’s Nov/Dec 2024 Gold Medal Service Awards issue.
