The 35th Annual Alabama Retail Day luncheon is set for Tuesday, Oct. 18. Terry Finley, president and chief executive officer of Books-A-Million, will be the keynote speaker.
The luncheon at the Vestavia Country Club in Birmingham coincides with the University of Alabama at Birmingham Collat School of Business’ Retail Day. The Alabama Retail Association and Bridgestone Retail Operations also serve as hosts for Retail Day.
By honoring the 2016 Alabama Retailers of the Year and the Alabama Centennial Retailers, the day recognizes successful retailers who make noteworthy contributions to their communities, enhance significantly the well-being of their associates and positively influence the Alabama economy. The day also promotes the study and practice of modern retailing. Alabama Retail Day began in 1982 at the University of Alabama main campus in Tuscaloosa. In 2006, Retail Day moved to Birmingham under the direction of the Retail Excellence Initiative within the UAB Collat School of Business.
