The Imaging Alliance, a non-profit organization representing the bold and diverse imaging industry, today announced the winners of its 2017 Visionary Retailer Awards. Glazer’s Camera, Adorama and Best Buy will be honored for their visionary achievements in imaging retailing at The Imaging Alliance’s Celebrate Imaging event on the eve of CES 2017 on Wednesday, January 4th, 2017 in Las Vegas.
“Among our first awards representing The Imaging Alliance, we wanted to turn our attention to honoring retailers that have created innovative strategies to connect with consumers,” said Jerry Grossman, the organization’s executive director. “Our board of directors agreed to look at three classes of retail – photo specialty, Internet and national retail, and find leaders in each discipline that fit our criteria of pushing the envelope in retail practices.”
Glazer’s Camera was chosen in the photo specialty category due to its recent investment in a new state-of-the-art location in the heart of downtown Seattle. “The sheer fact that the management of Glazer’s chose to invest so much in the new store, combined with their belief in the future of brick-and-mortar retailing in our industry, is an inspiration to the imaging industry,” said Grossman.
