Christian retailers will soon be selecting the best books, music and other resources of the year.
Suppliers have until Feb. 29 to nominate products for the eighth annual Retailers Choice Awards sponsored by Christian Retailing magazine.
Since its launch, the Retailers Choice Awards program has been increasingly acknowledged in the Christian products industry as an important way of recognizing some of the most significant new life-changing materials available.
The 2008 program sees the addition of three new categories, in recognition of the continuing changes in Christian retailing. Prizes for the best Catholic/Liturgical, Church Supplies and Vacation Bible School products introduced last year will be presented among a total of 31 categories.
Among the other categories in which the best new releases of 2007 will be chosen are audio, Bibles, general fiction, relationships, youth/teen, accessories/apparel, wall décor and Spanish.
Christian retail store owners and staff will vote for the products they most appreciated being able to make available to customers last year based on their ability to speak to people’s hearts and emotions, to open people’s minds to new ways of thinking and to encourage and affirm Christ-like thinking.
The winners will be announced at the International Christian Retail Show in Orlando, Fla., in July.
Suppliers can nominate products for $50 each through Feb. 29. Further information is available at http://www.retailerschoiceawards.com/, or by contacting Christian Retailing Managing Editor Christine D. Johnson at 407-333-0600, ext. 2682 or at email@example.com
