An Albemarle County company is the winner of an international award for innovation in online retail.
Store Your Board ships storage racks and supplies for board sports from a warehouse off Avon Street Extended. The company beat out hundreds of submissions to be named grand prize winner in the Big-Commerce Innovation Awards.
Big-Commerce recognized “Store Your Board" for its system of collecting and posting customer reviews and frequently asked questions about products.
“That's the whole point of technology and innovation - ‘How do you help the customer?’ and ‘How do you help our business?’ ‘How do we do that more efficiently for the business and also for the customer?’” said Josh Gordon, Store Your Board founder. “If you can answer the question yourself, then you can just buy and then you're happy because you know the rack's arriving in a couple days and you're done.”
Gordon founded the online store out of his house seven years ago.
Currently Store Your Board is looking for space to expand in central Virginia.
