In the sports industry, rising to the challenge during a
complex economy has earned a select group of retailers including
Cooperstown Connection of Cooperstown, NY- the Rising Star
Retailer Award from the Sports Licensing and Tailgate Show.
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.
