Retailer of the Year 2021

Retailer of the Year Awards

Sponsored by TowneBank 

Tuesday, October 5, 2021

Since 2008, Retail Alliance has held the Retailer of the Year (ROTY) for Hampton Roads’ retailers, restaurants, and other small businesses. The ROTY awards is our signature event to recognize excellence in retail while honoring Retail Alliance members who demonstrate the very best in customer service, reputability, store aesthetics, and community involvement. This year we will award winners in 35 Retail categories. In addition, we celebrate the Lifetime Achievement Award winner by honoring their many years in business and their contributions to the Hampton Roads community.

Winners will be announced Tuesday, October 5, 2021.

Check back here for videos of all the winners then!

Q: How are awards judged

A: Each and every Retail Alliance member will be a judge for the ROTY winners this year. Voting will be done via a link emailed individually to every Retail Alliance member on August 17. Each member will be asked to select their top 2-4 (depending on the size of the nomination pool) choices in each category that they feel should be recognized. If a voter does not feel confident in voting for a particular category, they have the option to skip it. Voting is limited to once per member. Voting closes on September 17.

Voters should refer to the purpose of ROTY when making their decisions.

“The ROTY awards recognize excellence in retailing while honoring merchants across retail, restaurant, and other small business categories who demonstrate the very best in product quality, customer service & experience, and community involvement.”

Q: Is there any cost associated with accepting the nomination?

A: No, the nomination process is free of charge.

Q: How are businesses nominated for Retailer of the Year 2021?

A: All Retail Alliance members who fit the criteria are automatically nominated.

Q: How will winners be determined?

A: Each Retail Alliance member will be allowed to vote once in each category. Members will select from the list of nominations their top three (rank order). Retail Alliance will calculate the winners based on their average score.

Q: How & when are winners announced?

A: Winners are announced via an upcoming released video. We will send out an email and update this website along with our social media channels once winners are determined. The only winner announced prior to the event is the Lifetime Achievement Award winner.

Q. What do winners receive?

A: Winners receive a plaque to display at their business location as well as bragging rights! There will also be publicity of the winners to the media and through social media channels.
