The deadline is drawing near to submit nominations for South Dakota's Retailer of the Year Award. The award will be presented by the South Dakota Retailers Association during an awards banquet to be held in Pierre in conjunction with the opening day of the state legislative session in January.
SDRA Executive Director Shawn Lyons says the business owners who have been honored in previous years as South Dakota's Retailer of the Year have two things in common: they have a strong commitment to their local community, and they consistently provide excellent service to their customers. Many have also persevered in the face of overwhelming odds.
Nominations for the Retailer of the Year Award should be submitted to the Retailers Association by Nov. 10 Nomination forms are available from the Association's Web site at www.sdra.org, by calling the organization toll-free at 1-800-658-5545 or by contacting the Association via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Letters of nomination will also be accepted, and may be sent to SDRA at Box 638, P ierre, SD 57501. Nominations should include an explanation of why the person deserves the award, and the information regarding the nominee's community activities.
