HARDWARE RETAILING | July 2016 18 F or the past 51 years, the North American Retail Hardware Association (NRHA) has held its Retailers' Choice Awards, which recognize some of the standout products on display at the National Hardware Show ® . The lively and entertaining ceremony is always a crowd favorite, as it brings together manufacturers and retailers in a fun environment to showcase innovative products hitting the market. The program honors manufacturers for their innovation and provides retailers and distributors with new products to check out on the last day of the show. The Retailers' Choice Awards differ from most awards programs in that they rely on the opinions of retailers who know what they need to do to attract customers. Winning products selected at the show this year range from grilling accessories to cleaning products, gardening gear and more. The judges, all independent home improvement retailers, included: James Cabirac of Kief Hardware in Louisiana; David Dishke of Grand River Home Hardware in Ontario, Canada; Jake Smith of Jared's Ace Hardware in South Carolina; Daniel Harris of Palos Ace Hardware in Illinois; RJ McDaniel of B&B Hardware in Illinois; and Ian McNaughton of Gravenhurst Home Hardware in Ontario, Canada. The retailer panel was asked to shop the floor as they usually would and select products they felt were unique, interesting and held a great promise for sales in their businesses.
