Retailers, it is time to name your favorite products of the year, in Christian Retailing's 2009 Retailers Choice Awards. This is your opportunity to vote for the products that you believe made the greatest impact on your life, and the lives of your staff and customers.
Voting also puts you in line to win hundreds of dollars' worth of nominated products, absolutely free-to sell in your store, distribute or keep for yourself. You could win products such as inspirational mugs from DaySpring or an ESV Study Bible from Crossway. Winners will be selected at random from participating stores.
This year, 36 companies--including book publishers, DVD producers and gift suppliers--have nominated more than 250 products, campaigns and suppliers in 30 categories. All products entered were released in 2008.
In the new awards added this year, you will get to select which was the best marketing campaign for a particular product and which is your favorite backlist product among those nominated.
Voting is open to any store owner, manager, staff member or volunteer, who can vote just once. To vote, go to the Retailers Choice Awards Web site, and click on the link to the ballot.
In voting, you are asked to judge the nominations based on the impact they had on your staff and customers, including their ability to speak to people's hearts and emotions, open people's minds to new ways of thinking, and encourage and affirm Christlike living.
