SEATTLE, July 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Tommy Bahama has been named to Newsweek’s list of “America’s Best Retailers 2023,” ranking #2 in the apparel category. Celebrating their 30th anniversary, Tommy Bahama continues to communicate the importance of quality, craftsmanship and exceptional customer service through a distinctive brand experience and a ‘Live the Island Life’ message. Tommy Bahama has been recognized by Newsweek in the best customer service category for the last two years.

The “America’s Best Retailers 2023” list is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.

In total, over 140,000 evaluations were collected.

The final assessment and rankings were based on the likelihood of recommendation and five evaluation criteria that included: quality and variety of product; friendliness and efficiency of customer service; and overall design of the stores including layout, accessibility, and atmosphere.

“We’re very honored to be named to the list of America’s Best Retailers,” said Mike Barrow, Senior Vice President of Retail & Guest Services for Tommy Bahama. “The artistry and craftsmanship of our product, as well as the incredible hospitality provided by our people, uniquely positions us to delight our guests with the best the island life has to offer.
