Awards

Every year, independent uniform retailers have an opportunity to vote for their favorite manufacturer in the following categories:


Manufacturer of the Year
Best Sales Representative
Best Customer Service Department

Best Inside Customer Service Representative
Best Delivery


Retailers have an opportunity to submit their nominees and vote at the Annual Trade Show.

Best In-Store Display
Best Window Display


In 2012, we added another new category. With these awards, manufacturers have an opportunity to nominate and vote for their favorite retailers in various regions of the country for both single store owner and multiple store owner categories. Manufacturers were encouraged to nominate retailers based on store appearance, merchandising, volume of sales, inventory control, brand coverage and store produced promotions.

Retailers are encouraged to submit photos of their displays for voting at the next Annual URA Trade Show. Displays MUST USE merchandise from brands represented at the upcoming trade show and pictures can not contain a store name. Each store/company is limited to 3 photos per category.

Photos must be emailed to URA@UniformRetailers.org no later than September 1 to be considered for the contest.
