McCook Retailer One of Top 5 America’s Retail Champions

On September 5th, the 2018 America’s Retail Champion competition took place in Washington D.C., where top retailers from each state gathered to compete for the winning title. Excitingly, one of our own 2018 Nebraska Retail Champions, Linda Taylor of McCook, qualified among the five finalists for the title and award given by the National Retail Federation (NRF).

Linda and her business were given recognition by the National Retail Federation’s President and CEO, Matthew Shay, who said that “small businesses like VK Electronics are the backbone of America’s economy…NRF is proud to recognize hardworking individuals, including Linda Taylor, in Washington this week as the industry’s most engaged retail advocates.” The other four finalists were Tom Largay from Portland, Maine, Nicole Panettieri from New York City, New York, Sean Brownlee from Burlington, North Carolina, and Lisa Mergel from Tallahassee, Florida, who was named America’s Retail Champion of 2018.

While the Nebraska Retail Federation team was in Washington D.C., they discussed some major issues currently impacting the retail industry with Congressman Jeff Fortenberry, Congressman Don Bacon, Congressman Adrian M. Smith, Senator Ben Sasse, and Senator Deb Fischer. The issues this powerful group discussed included Trade Policy (Tariffs), Tax Reform, Payment Security, Data Security, and Joint Employer Clarification. All recognized the potential damage tariffs will have on retailers long term if the issues are not resolved, and all agree that the resolution process is not going to be easy.
