Gifts and Decorative Accessories has announced finalists for the 67th annual Retailer Excellence Awards—the most longstanding and prestigious retail awards in the gift industry!
Last year, Gifts and Decorative Accessories deviated from the usual program to hand out special industry-wide Century Awards in celebration of our 100th anniversary. Now, we return to our retailer-focused gala and award ceremony, sponsored by NY NOW, honoring all that retailers do to succeed in todays’ fast changing environment.
The following retailers are being recognized in seven award categories for their upstanding work in the gift and home industry.
In addition to asking retailers for submissions to celebrate their hard work, we also asked them to tell us who their favorite vendors and sales representatives are to work with. Those finalists are:
