Serving Central Indiana since 1947

We continue our tribute to the current BrandSource Dealers of the Year class with a round of applause for Bishopp’s Appliances of Shelbyville, Ind.

Owners Becky and Anne Bishopp were chosen for the award by their fellow Mid America Region members and were honored at the BrandSource National Convention in Nashville.

Bishopp’s Appliances has been serving the Central Indiana market since 1947, when Richard and Nola Bess Bishopp opened what was originally a hardware store. Three years later the couple added appliances to the mix, and today the third-generation family business sells, installs and services a full range of home appliances out of its Shelbyville and Columbus stores, which employ a dozen staffers.

Besides family and staff, Becky Bishopp credits BrandSource for contributing to the company’s success through its exclusive merchandising programs, consumer financing offers, and the best practices that are shared by the group’s thousands of independent appliance retailers across the country.

The BrandSource Dealer of the Year awards are presented annually to members who have shown their continued support of BrandSource and its direct suppliers. Dealers of the Year must demonstrate that support by attending regional meetings as well as national events such as the Convention and BrandSource Summit.

Honorees were selected by the membership within each of the organization’s 14 Regions, and are saluted for their commitment to excellence in the retail industry and to their fellow BrandSource dealers.

A well-deserved congratulations to Becky, Anne and Bishopp’s Appliances!
