Retailers earn award

The North Carolina Retail Merchants Association named Lowes Foods and Monkee’s boutique as recipients of its 2015 Retailer of the Year awards, which recognizes excellence in retail.

The organization gave the awards during its annual luncheon in Winston-Salem. The stores, both based in Winston-Salem, were among four retailers who received awards.

“We are proud of all of our retail members, who work day in and day out to provide superior value to their customers, and these four award recipients have served North Carolina’s retail industry with distinction,” said Andy Ellen, NCRMA president and general counsel, in a news release. “They deserve statewide recognition because they are helping to sustain local economies, changing to meet the needs of their customers, and giving back to their local communities.”

The awards are given based on a retailer’s contributions to the state’s economy, business innovations and impact on the local community.
