The North American Hardware and Paint Association (NHPA) will host its 2021 Young Retailer of the Year ceremony in a virtual event on May 5.
For 25 years, NHPA has highlighted the achievements of independent home improvement retailers 35 years old and younger through its Young Retailer of the Year program. The program honors retailers in three categories: sales under $2 million; sales above $2 million; and multistore operations. This year marks the first time NHPA has included paint retailers in the award program after the organization expanded its membership to include paint and decorating retailers in 2020.
The virtual celebration is an opportunity for the entire independent channel to gather and celebrate the next generation of independent home improvement and paint retailers. Honorees will have the chance to thank their families, communities and coworkers at the virtual event.
The 2021 Young Retailer of the Year virtual ceremony is open to the public, but seats are limited. Click here to learn more and register to attend.
