Skeean was randomly selected to win the luxury vacation after entering in Solair's Virgin Islands giveaway contest held during the 2012 International Casual Furniture & Accessories Market. The contest sought to encourage patio retailers to learn more about the demand for awnings and the benefits these stylish shade products offer homeowners and business owners alike, according to a press release.
"This gesture truly signifies Solair's ongoing commitment to supporting patio stores and the growth of awning sales in this market and I look forward to enjoying some relaxing time outdoors," Skeean said.
The Solair PS5000 awning
Retailers participating in the Solair awning program experience a seamless, no inventory and high-margin opportunity to offer three distinct awning models to customers - PS1000, PS2000 and PS5000 - with reasonable up-front costs, the release states.
"Our goal is to help patio retailers discover the market opportunity that the Solair awning program offers in providing expanded, high-quality shade options to customers," said Rett Haigler, manager of Solair. "We hope Ronald enjoys a relaxing retreat in the Virgin Islands as we continue to seek new ways to help patio furniture stores experience the benefits of offering Solair awnings to customers."
