2008 Apollo Awards feature familiar faces

Many of this year’s Apollo Award nominees are no strangers to the honor. Two of them won the award last year.

Rancho Mirage, Calif.-based Patios Plus won the multistore category at the 48th annual Apollo Awards gala, which was held at Navy Pier in Chicago during the 2007 Casual Market. Third place in the category went to another 2008 nominee, Fort Myers, Fla.-based Robb & Stucky Patio.

In the single store category, all three top retailers from the 2007 Apollo Awards have repeated as nominees this year. The 2007 winner was Oyster Bay, N.Y.-based Dodds & Eder. Dallas-based Sunnyland Furniture placed second, while third-place honors went to Fruehauf’s Patio & Garden, based in Boulder, Colo.
