Voting retailers have chosen the finalists in the 11th annual Retailers Choice Awards, sponsored by Christian Retailing magazine. The finalists were among a record 350-plus products nominated in 39 categories. The winners will be announced in Orlando in late April.     

Products nominated in the competition were judged on the impact they have had on staff and customers, including the products’ ability to speak to hearts and evoke emotion, open minds to new ways of thinking, and encourage and affirm Christlike living.
