Mighty Ape wins Best Shopping Site

By Dylan

We're proud to announce today that Mighty Ape has won the awards for Best Shopping Site and Best Site for Gamers at the 2011 NetGuide Web Awards, held last night at an award ceremony at the Hilton Hotel on Auckland's wa­terfront.

The Web Awards are decided by votes from the public, and with over 270,000 votes casts, we owe it all to you, our awesome customers, for receiving this fantastic recognition. Thank you.

We built Mighty Ape to provide New Zealanders with an online store of international quality both in terms of range and price, but also service, speed and a quality web site experience. Being recognized with this award means a great deal to our whole team and we're very, very happy.

Thanks for voting for us and for supporting Mighty Ape – we really appreciate having you as part of the team!

PS: Mighty Ape was also a finalist for Site of the Year along side Facebook, Google, Trade Me and Stuff (some pretty big names!). Unfortunately for us, Facebook secured that particular award this time around, but there's always next year, right?

    Sites like Facebook and Google(?) should not be included in something like this (FB is a joke and Google is a fraking search engine that comes default with pretty much every type of machine nowdays)

    But enough with the grouchness, back to celebrating: candy bananas for all the little monkeys (and the top Ape of course) :D
