Hubert White Named Retailer of the Year

After reviewing dozens of applications from across the state, the Minnesota Retailers Association is pleased to award Hubert White its Retailer of the Year award in the 2019 Minnesota’s Retail Champions program.

“When you look at successful retailers and how they not only serve customers but how long they have been in business, Hubert White stands out,” says Bruce Nustad, Minnesota Retailers Association president. “From their admired helpful and respectful staff, to their quality products, to the fact that they have been in business since 1916, everything about the store is impressive. The storyline of the White family alone is awe-inspiring. We are honored to recognize Hubert White as our Retailer of the Year.”

“As a family-owned company, we focus on the relationships we can build in retail,” says Bob White, owner of Hubert White. “Our staff respects the customers and makes sure the environment in the store is warm, welcoming, and comfortable. Some of my best friends have been met through Hubert White. My grandfather started the store, passed it down to my father, and now to me. This company is not only my livelihood but my family’s legacy. We are so pleased to be recognized as the Retailer of the Year.”

Bob White will accept the award in person during the Retail Rally event on Wednesday, October 2, 2019, at Brookview in Golden Valley beginning at 2:00 p.m. The event features seven 20-minute practical, game-changing, cutting edge retail innovations strategies and ideas. Speakers include local favorite and award-winning news anchor-reporter Robyne Robinson with fiveXfive Public Art.

Hubert White is the sole recipient of the Minnesota’s Retail Champions Retailer of the Year award. Seven other organizations will be recognized in other categories such as Outstanding Achievement, Retail Employee of the Year, Social Responsibility, Vendor Partner of the Year, Customer Experience, Best Place to Work, and Retail Innovation.
