The Western Toy & Hobby Representatives Association (WTHRA) has announced a new “Retailer of the Month” campaign designed to honor retail stores in the western states. “This is our way of thanking those retailers who work hard 365 days a year to bring value to the toy industry and their local communities,” notes WTHRA President Bill St. John
Retail stores, manufacturers, reps and store customers are encouraged to submit an application, available on toyfestwest.com, to nominate a toy, gift, baby, educational or e-tail store they value, enjoy and find deserving of this honor. WTHRA’s slate of officers will choose a winning retailer each month throughout 2018.
Recipients will be featured on the ToyFest West website with a photo and a short description of the store and its owners, and will receive a framed certificate to hang in their stores. The announcement will be made through ToyFest West social media pages.
WTHRA will continue to name a Retailer of the Year and Inductees to its Hall of Fame each year. These pioneers and leaders in the toy industry are chosen by Board Chair Blake Goldenberg based on nominations submitted by WTHRA’s board ToyFest West’s Slate of Officers.
Recipients will be honored at the ToyFest West Gala, part of the annual tradeshow that will take place March 11 to 13 at the South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa in Las Vegas.
