NATIONAL REPORT -- Store Brands, a sister publication of Convenience Store News, is seeking nominations for its 2014 Innovation Awards, which honor private label excellence.
Retailers are eligible for awards in four major categories: Product Development, Packaging Design, Consumer Marketing and In-Store Merchandising. In addition, retailers will be honored in three special categories: Sustainable Packaging, Best TV Advertising and Best Use of Digital Media.
Retailers may nominate themselves. Suppliers and agencies also may submit retailer nominations, but the awards will be given to, and must be accepted by, retailers.
The deadline for submitting nominations is Aug. 8.
Award recipients will be honored during a Nov. 17 gala dinner reception held in conjunction with the PLMA Private Label Trade Show at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare Hotel in Rosemont, Ill.
