Enter the Retailer Excellence Awards!

It’s that time of year again when Gifts & Decorative Accessories start scouting for the best of the best in retail! The Retailer Excellence Awards has recognized excellence in the gift and home industry for more than 70 years. Though the event was held virtually the last two years, the award ceremony is returning to its traditional in-person presentation, and it’s earlier in the year than ever before. For the first time in its long history, the event will take place in June in Dallas, in conjunction with the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market.

Because of the earlier event date, it’s important to get your submissions in NOW for the Retailer Excellence Awards.

The REAs recognize outstanding achievement in seven retail categories:

  • Social Media Outreach and Online Initiatives
  • Store Design/Redesign
  • Visual Merchandising
  • Store Events
  • Specialty Store
  • Multiple Locations
  • Socially Responsible

The deadline for submissions is April 18, so act soon! Nominees will be notified in early May and celebrated in an in-person award ceremony on Wednesday, June 22, 2022, at the Tower Club Dallas. Please plan to attend, should you win.
