VRA Retailer of the Year nominations requested

first_imgSource: VRA -30- Tasha Wallis, Executive Director of the Vermont Retail Association (VRA), announced today the second annual VRA Retailer of the Year Award.(ROYs). “The overwhelmingly positive response to last year’s ROYs made it clear that Vermont’s retail industry believed in the value of recognizing outstanding excellence among its members,” said Wallis. “In addition, retailers employ more Vermonters than any other business sector except health care, with more than 40,000 working in retail–16% of the entire work force. That makes it especially appropriate to highlight the ‘best of the best’ each year.”All Vermont businesses engaged in retail operations will be eligible for nomination and consideration for the 2009 Vermont Retailer of the Year Awards. Nominations may be submitted using the Retailer of the Year nomination form on the association’s website, www.vtretailers.com(link is external). VRA will accept nominations through November 30, 2009.
