Western Toy & Hobby Representatives Association (WTHRA) President Bill St. John announced a new campaign that will feature and honor retail stores in the Western States, “Retailer of the Month.” St. John said, “This is our way of thanking and awarding those retailers that work hard 365 days a year and bring value to the Toy Industry as well as the local community.”
Retail stores, manufacturers, reps and customers are encouraged to submit an application on ToyFest West.com to nominate a retail toy, gift, baby, educational or e-tail store they value, enjoy and find deserving of this honor. The WTHRA Slate of Officers will choose a retailer to be featured each month starting January of 2018. A recipient of the Retailer of the Month award will be featured on the ToyFest West (TFW) website with a photo, short bio about the store and its owners, receive a framed certificate to hang in their store and will be announced on the TFW social media pages.
WTHRA will continue to honor Retailer of the Year and Hall of Fame Inductees with an invitation to the ToyFest West Gala. These pioneers and leaders in the toy industry are chosen by Chairman of the Board, Blake Goldenberg, with nominations from WTHRA’s Board of Directors and TFW’s Slate of Officers. Hall of Fame Inductees and Retailer of the Year will be announced in December 2017.
ToyFest West is hosted by Western Toy & Hobby Representatives Association and will take place at the South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa, March 11-13, 2018.
