Retailers had an opportunity to submit nominees and vote at the Annual Trade Show.
In 2012, we added a new category. With these awards, manufacturers had 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 were encouraged to annually submit photos of their displays . Displays had to use merchandise from brands represented at the upcoming trade show and pictures could not contain a store name. Each store/company was limited to 3 photos per category.
From 2008 through 2017, independent uniform retailers had an opportunity to vote for their favorite manufacturer in the various categories.
