"We are pleased to recognize The Hot 100 for 2008. They reflect the best of what retailers can do online. Retailers in our Hot 100 represent the range of online retailing, from small to large, and include chains, catalogers, online-only merchants and brand name manufacturers. They have in common the willingness to innovate and set the standards in online retailing for what the rest of the industry should be doing." says Kurt T. Peters, editor in chief.
