Retailers have chosen the finalists in the 11th annual Retailers Choice Awards, sponsored by Christian Retailing magazine. Thomas Nelson tops the list with 25 finalists in the running. A dozen Zondervan products are finalists, with Tyndale House Publishers rounding out the top three with 10 finalists.
Retailers selected the finalists among a record 350-plus products nominated in 39 categories. See all of the finalists at www.retailerschoiceawards.com. Winners will be announced at Christian Retailing's Retailing ReBoot 2011 event (retailingreboot.com), to be held April 26-28 at the Florida Hotel and Conference Center in Orlando, Fla.
Introduced in 2001, the Retailers Choice Awards have been increasingly acknowledged as an important way of recognizing some of the most significant new life-changing products in the Christian retail industry. Retailers were asked to judge nominations on the impact they have had on staff and customers, including their ability to:
• speak to people’s hearts and evoke emotion
• open people’s minds to new ways of thinking
• encourage and affirm Christ-like living.
