We are beyond thrilled to announce that we are a 2016 Retailer of the Year Winner!! Each year, for the past 17 years, the Alabama Retail Association presents awards to retailers across the state. This year we are a finalist in the small business category. Businesses must be nominated to be considered for this prestigious award. This year, Southern Accents was nominated by local business owner Rob Werner of Werner’s Trading Company. Once a nomination is made, the nominees are notified and required to submit an entry form that contains numerous questions regarding business practices. These forms then go before a panel of experienced judges. A gold, silver and bronze distinction is awarded within each category.
Tuesday, October 18th, Southern Accents will close the business for the day, so that our entire team can travel to Birmingham for the award presentation. We will not know whether we won the gold, silver or bronze distinction until the awards luncheon on the 18th, but we are both humbled and thrilled to have received this honor. We would like to thank Rob Werner for believing in what we do and nominating us for such a distinguished award. We would also like to thank all our customers whose patronage and support allow us to follow our passion… salvaging architectural antiques and elements of historical significance.
