On April 18th, 2008, The Boston Business Journal recognized Merchant Warehouse as one of the fastest growing private companies in the region at their 2008 Pacesetter's Award breakfast, held at the Sheraton Hotel in Boston, MA. The Pacesetter's Award is intended to acknowledge the achievements of rapid growing companies throughout the Greater Boston area, recognizing their robust revenues, commendable management skills, and their abilities to craft successful business strategies within a competitive industry. The Boston Business Journal publisher, Mike Olivieri, states, "We have been able to give the business community a list of the fastest growing, smartest, and most successful companies that everyone should be watching." The ceremony hosted approximately 600 people from private, public, and non-profit sectors, and the top-rated companies were determined by survey information gathered and analyzed by the BBJ and based on revenue growth from 2004 to 2007. With 143.64% in revenue growth, Merchant Warehouse ranked #33 out of 60 companies who were selected, and was honored the 2008 BBJ Pacesetter's award to the song, "Half-Way There" by Bon Jovi.
