Rock/Creek Nominated for 2012 SNEWS & Backpacker “Retailer of the Year”

Late last week, we received notification that we’d been nominated for the 2012 SNEWS / Backpacker “Retailer of the Year” award, sponsored by Horny Toad. For the full list of nominees, click here.

From this pool of nominated retailers, SNEWS will name one “Retailer of the Year” in addition to naming a best-in-class retailer for each of the following five categories: Online Retailer, Community, Growth of Outdoor Sports, Sustainable Business and Youth Involvement. Rock/Creek was named “Online Retailer of the year” by SNEWS in the 2009 competition.

In addition to that 2009 Online Retailer of the Year award, Rock/Creek was named Retailer of the Year by the Grassroots Outdoor Alliance in 2011 (see article here). We’ve also made the Outdoor Business “Top 25 Outdoor Retailers” list in four consecutive years.

This year’s winners will be announced on January 19th.

Rock/Creek is proud to again be in the running for this award, and we’d like to extend special thanks to the customers who nominated us.
