Back by popular demand, CBA is sponsoring a spring 2018 merchandising contest, “Inspiring Customers With Gift-Shopping Experiences.”

Dove Christian Supply was the winner of the fall 2017 contest, receiving donated gift products from UNITE 2017 vendors, as well as three nights stay at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center during UNITE 2018 in Nashville, July 8-11.

Christian retail stores have another chance to win a three nights stay at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center during UNITE 2018, as well as free admittance to CBA’s Retail Academy and a complimentary membership package, by entering the spring merchandising contest.

To enter the contest, stores must submit photos of their spring merchandising by noon, March 9, 2018. Photos will be posted on CBA’s social media sites with #CBAMerchContest and a winner will be selected by industry merchandising experts by March 12. The winning store will be announced on CBA’s Facebook page, website, and Christian MARKET Weekly e-newsletter, as well as in the Retail Market column of the May issue of the Christian MARKET magazine.

To enter the contest, retailers must submit the following via email to info@cbaonline.org by noon on March 9, 2018:

  • High-resolution photos of their store, showing how merchandising techniques and principles were applied
  • Store name and location
