The Alabama Retail Association will accept nominations for the 2016 Alabama Retailer of the Year awards through Monday, May 16. In its 17th year, this prestigious award recognizes outstanding retailers who have demonstrated a blend of sound business practices with commitment to their communities, customers and employees. Nominees must own, operate or manage a retail business with a physical presence in Alabama and that Alabama location must have been in operation for a minimum of five years. To be considered a retail operation, a business must collect state and local sales taxes.
“A winning entry is a retailer who has been a credit to retailing and an asset to their community. Retailers provide jobs, serve their communities and help boost Alabama’s economy,” said Alabama Retail President Rick Brown. “The Retailer of the Year awards honor just a few of the many outstanding retailers who make a positive difference every day in the communities they serve.”
Anyone may nominate an Alabama retailer and nominators may submit multiple retailers for consideration in any given award year. Previous nominees who did not receive an award may be nominated again. Gold winners can only be recognized once in a sales category. All other previous winners can be nominated in subsequent years. Self-nominations are appropriate.
For additional information on the Retailer of the Year Awards or to make a nomination by telephone, please contact Nancy King Dennis.
