The Summer Classics San Antonio store won the Reader's Choice Award for Favorite Furniture Store in San Antonio by the San Antonio Express-News.
The winners are chosen by San Antonio Express-News subscribers, and will be officially announced in the newspaper on June 17.
"This is such a great honor for the store, and our amazing team," said Tracy Navarro, Summer Classics San Antonio store manager.
The Summer Classics San Antonio store has been open for five years, and the team goes above and beyond what is expected of a furniture store.
"When you walk into the store, you feel like you're walking into someone's home," Navarro said. "Once you come in, you'll never want to leave."
The store offers at home design consultations where a member of the staff visits a customer's home to help them find the Summer Classics furnishings and fabrics that are right for them.
"It's such a great part of our job to be able to go to a someone's home and know that you've helped them find the furnishings that are going to be a part of their life's best moments," Navarro said.
With 32 outdoor collections, indoor furnishings, exclusive Summer Classics outdoor fabrics and a variety of accessories, there is a wide range of products for customers to choose.
"Not only does the store have an exceptional staff with the best customer service, but the store also offers high-quality products that you can't find anywhere else," said Jim Calhoun, VP of Retail for Summer Classics.
"We're also involved with the San Antonio community, and it is one of the most rewarding aspects of our jobs," Navarro said.
This year, San Antonio partnered with The Ballet Conservatory and raised more than $4,000. To help the St. Peter and Joseph's Children's Home, the store raised more than $1,800. They also donated more than $5,000 worth of items for charitable auctions last year, and have already donated around $5,000 for auctions this year.
"Everyone should visit the store to meet the wonderful staff, and to see the unique building," Calhoun said. "It's an old 1950s car dealership with a vibrant revitalization of the space. The store is so happy to be a part of the neighborhood's restoration."
Summer Classics has designed, manufactured and sold high quality outdoor furniture for more than 30 years.
There are seven Summer Classics retail stores and four licensees in the United States.
