Do You Know a Merchandising Master?By Tim Hodson

Do you know a garden center that has been doing something really different or totally unique when it comes to retail merchandising?

Perhaps it is your own retail operation or maybe it is one of your customers.

Either way, if you know someone that has really been pushing the merchandising envelope, then our sister publication, Lawn & Garden Retailer, would like to know about them for the 2013 Merchandiser of the Year award.

This award recognizes those retailers who have created their own outstanding – and effective – merchandising displays.

The winner of Lawn & Garden Retailer’s Merchandiser of the Year competion will receive: a $500 Wholesale Gift credit and a 15% discount from Braun Horticulture‘s 2013 catalog offering (one time); and a fully-stocked and colorful Dramm 60501 Assorted Gardening Display worth SRP $2,864.76. The winner also will be featured in the September 2013 issue of Lawn & Garden Retailer.

But don’t delay, the deadline for submissions is next Monday, July 8. You can learn more about how to enter the Merchandiser of the Year Competition on the Lawn & Garden Retailer website.

A Chance to Meet the Future

Don’t forget, if you are going to OFA Short Course (July 13-17, in Columbus, Ohio), there will be a special Mix ‘N Mingle session with GPN’s 40 Under 40 Class of 2013.

The Mix ‘N Mingle session will take place Sunday, July 14, from 10:45 a.m. until 11:45 a.m. in Ballroom 2 in the Greater Columbus Convention Center. This special session is FREE and open to all attendees

This is your chance to meet the future of the horticulture industry.
