Call for nominations: Home Accents Today's 2011 Retail Stars
Susan Dickenson -- Casual Living, February 14, 2011
Our annual 50 Retail Stars list, published each May, recognizes enterprising independent home accents retailers who are creative in their merchandising, successful at what they do, contributing to their communities and, most important, are distinguishing themselves from the competition. They excel at innovative marketing and advertising efforts, head-turning in-store displays and out-of-the-box business ideas.
The retailers selected are listed in our May issue, of which they'll receive both print and jpg copies to reproduce and use on websites, in marketing materials, etc. We'll also send a certificate and formatted press release to share with local publications and media. Plus, the Retail Stars lists are mined in the coming year long for editorial sources, monthly retail profiles and special events at market.
This is not a ranking, and is not based on sales volume.
A retailer may only be named to the list once, so please do not submit a nomination form if your store has been honored as a Retail Star in a prior/past year.

If you have questions or would like to submit images of your store, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. We also urge manufacturers, reps and consumers to encourage their favorite retailers to submit, or email us the store's contact info and we will send them the link.
