2017 BD Retailers of the Year
In 2017, Beverage Dynamics will recognize retailers from throughout the country who demonstrate innovation, excellent customer service and superior beverage alcohol industry knowledge. Will your store make the list?
Nominations are now closed for the 2017 Retailers of the Year. Winners have been notified and will be announced at the Beverage Alcohol Retailers Conference in Minneapolis on June 13. Thank you to everyone who entered!
Do You Have What It Takes?
Managing a retail location (or chain of stores) while satisfying customers and turning a profit is difficult, especially in today’s highly regulated industry. That’s why we’re looking for the best of the best – retailers who take pride in their business, care about their customers and employees and stay involved in their community and the industry at large.
If your business fits that criteria, we encourage you to nominate yourself as a Retailer of the Year candidate. If you know of a retailer who should be honored, you can also nominate someone else.
Award Program Details
In the May/June issue, we’ll count down the top U.S. off-premise retailers.
The nomination form is detailed – asking questions about business practices, community involvement, product stocking, employee programs and plans for future success. Not all information is required, but retailers who provide more information increase their chances of winning. We will not publicly share any of the information on the nomination form – statistics included in the magazine will only be aggregate data collected from all winners.
Nomination Forms are due by
November 1, 2016 February 1, 2017. FINAL EXTENSION! February 3, 2017.
