Well, this is cause for celebration, don't you think?
We earned this award by selling more Stetson Dress Hats than any other retailer in the USA. This is a big feat for us, and we're very proud of it.
Ernest DelMonico, third-generation Owner, had this to say:
"DelMonico Hatter has been selling Stetson Hats for many of our 107 years in business. Receiving this award, as the top Stetson Dress Hat Dealer, is a testament to our many loyal customers and to the hat knowledge and dedication of our staff."
The Staff of DelMonico Hatter would also like to take this opportunity to thank our many loyal Stetson customers, without which such an achievement would not have been possible - so, thank you!
