Las Vegas, Nevada — The Rising Star Awards recognize one retailer from each of the 50 states including Washington, D.C., for its progressive approach to marketing, merchandising and dealing with the consumers who walk through their doors.
“Cooperstown Connection embodies the spirit of innovation that makes the business of sports and tailgating great,” said awards presenter Mark Stewart, Executive Director. “Each of our Rising Stars serves as a beacon for those seeking creative ways to connect with their customers and stand out in a retail crowd at a time when competition is fierce.”
The combined industries of sports licensing and tailgating account for roughly $20 billion in sales each year, and should continue to trend upward in 2013. While most sectors of the retail economy have lagged in recent years, tailgating and sports licensed products have harnessed the passion of sports to carry stores like Cooperstown Connection through both good and trying times. Their commitment in bringing fresh products onto the selling floor and fresh ideas to loyal customers is what keeps them coming back for more.
Cooperstown Connection is now offering Franchise Opportunities across the United States.
