Norby's owners and staff accepted the Retailer of the Year Award at the 2017 Minnesota's Retail Champions Awards on Wednesday night.

Winners accepted their awards in person during the inaugural Retail Rally event on Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2017, at the Opus College of Business at the University of St. Thomas (1000 Lasalle Ave. Minneapolis).

"We are proud to recognize 12 innovative retailers and partners that rose to the top following a robust process to identify Minnesota's Retail Champions," says Bruce Nustad, Minnesota Retailers Association president. "The retail industry has a deep impact on Minnesota communities, and these award recipients are truly representative of what's great about retail across the state."

The Minnesota Retailers Association started the award process by putting out a statewide call for nominations in the 12 categories. A panel of peer judges reviewed nearly six dozen nominations and selected the top nominee in each category.
