Attalla’s Wills Creek Clothing nominated for Alabama Retail award


Wills Creek Clothing in Attalla was nominated for the 2024 Alabama Retailer of the Year award.

The prestigious award honors owners of stores that operate a retail establishment or an eating and drinking establishment in cities throughout Alabama and is given by the Alabama Retail Association.

The Alabama Retail Association was formed in 1943 by retailers who saw a need for representation when public policy was made. Today, Alabama Retail represents 4,300 members with some 6,000 locations statewide, ranging from small, family-owned retail stores to large national chains.

The primary objective of the Alabama Retail Association, according to its website, is to lobby the Alabama Legislature and U.S. Congress on behalf of retailers. Alabama Retail works at the local, state and national levels of government to educate lawmakers on the needs of retailers and cultivate a strong business climate. The association continually monitors legislative activity and represents retailers on such issues as workers’ compensation regulation, check fees, tax reform and business license reform.

The Alabama Retail Association presents the Retailer of the Year awards annually. Nominees must operate or manage a retail business in Alabama, which has been in business for at least five years. To be considered a retailer, the business must collect state and local sales taxes.

The nominees have until Monday, June 3, to return entry information to be considered for the 2024 awards.

Wills Creek Clothing is the only nominee for Etowah County and is a women’s clothing boutique located in Downtown Attalla. Their website boasts “the best fashion at affordable prices.”
