Virginia Beach, Virginia, July 10, 2017 (Newswire.com) - On May 30th, 2017, it was announced that Long Jewelers, located in Virginia Beach, Virginia, has been voted Retailer of the Year by the Retail Alliance. One of 14 other award winners, Long Jewelers was chosen from a pool of over 99 other nominees across the Greater Hampton Roads region and was ultimately chosen as the 2017 Retailer of the Year winner for being “the best of the best on the Southside based on criteria such as customer service, visual merchandising, signage, online presence, store appearance, and so much more,” according to Ray Mattes, President/CEO of Retail Alliance.
In addition to these criteria, Long Jewelers was also voted 2017 Retailer of the Year in part because of their charitable work, including ongoing involvement with Rotary International, the Foodbank, St. Jude’s, the American Heart Association, the Autism Society and much more.
Further, in celebration of this great honor, United States Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) wrote to congratulate Long Jewelers on receiving the Retailer of the Year Award and to commend General Manager Jon Walp on “exemplary leadership and business excellence… (and) ability to grow your business, become financially stable, and to positively impact the community.”
