Top 10 Vendors Named as Retailers Choice Finalists

65th Annual REAsThe Retailer Excellence Awards celebrates retailers that are doing an outstanding job running their stores and keeping their customers happy.

But there’s another piece to this retail puzzle, and that’s delighting the retailers themselves and making their jobs just a little bit easier. In 2012, to honor those gift industry companies that have done just that, Gifts and Decorative Accessories added the Retailers’ Choice Manufacturer/Vendor of the Year competition, which ultimately allows our retailers to select one company that has had a positive impact on many of them.

After polling Gifts and Decorative Accessories Gifted Retailers, 10 Manufacturers/Vendors have been chosen as finalists for this award. All 10 are exemplary in so many ways, from stellar customer service to on-time shipping to great product selection at great price points. And all are already winners.

The finalists are:

A voting link will be posted first thing Monday morning, and voting is open through July 25. Retailers get ready and vote for your favorites!

The winner will be announced at the 65th annual Retailer Excellence Awards on August 21, 2016, at The Lighthouse on Chelsea Piers in New York City, in conjunction with NY Now.
