Retailer of the Year Awards 2019: “That ’70’s ROTY Show” Presented by Dollar Bank

May 30, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


The time has come again to recognize the shining stars in the Hampton Roads’ retail and business community! The Retailer of the Year (ROTY) Awards, hosted by Retail Alliance and presented by Dollar Bank, is our premier awards gala that recognizes the commitment and perseverance it takes for retailers and businesses to grow and succeed. On this ’70s themed night, nominees will have the chance to win awards across retail, restaurant, service categories representing Southside and Peninsula as well as an overall winner. In addition, we will recognize “Up and Comer” businesses, the people’s choice award (voted by consumers) for LOVEVA businesses, and honor our Lifetime Achievement Award recipient.

Outside of the awards, we have a swell evening planned! ROTY 2019 will be held at Noah’s Event Venue Chesapeake, in Chesapeake, on May 30th starting at 6:00PM with the very fitting theme of “That ’70s ROTY show”. The dress code is cocktail attire or ’70s groove. We encourage our guests to wear something hippy, disco or funky.

Our event will be emceed by the wonderful Cheryl Tan, co-host of HR Business Weekly/CONNECT and owner of Cheryl Tan Media.

We truly hope you’ll join us for a journey back to the ’70s at Noah’s Event Venue for connecting with your peers, honors and awards, amazing hors d’oeuvres, and free drinks (wine and beer)!

Parking: Free parking is located in Noah’s Event Venue’s parking lot
