Young Retailer of the Year

Back in February, one of our hardware suppliers, Handy Hardware, nominated Jeffry for an industry award. We were interviewed and gave the interviewer the needed information for the application. We really didn't think we had much of a chance to win because it's a national award, but you never know.

Well, Jeffry DID win Young Retailer of the Year, an award bestowed by the North American Retail Hardware Association. This is a huge honor! Jeffry and I flew out to Vegas in May for him to receive his award along with 4 other deserving retailers. I am beyond proud of my husband! 

If you'd like to see Jeffry's application, complete with photos of our store, click here, read the intro and then click more info to see the entire portfolio. It's pretty impressive if I do say so myself!

Here are some photos from our trip to Vegas!
