Klem's of Spencer, MA is a 2022 America’s Retail Champions Finalist!

Meet the 2022 America's Retail Champions Finalists


As the voice of retail for over a century, the National Retail Federation has a long history of convening retailers. The annual Retail Advocates Summit, the industry’s premiere advocacy event, returns to Washington, D.C., July 27-28, giving retailers a chance to connect with lawmakers to share their stories and celebrating the contributions retailers make to communities across the country.

Those celebrations include recognition of small businesses that go above and beyond to advocate for the retail industry year-round. The America’s Retail Champions program features 34 small businesses, of which five have been named as finalists. On July 28, one small retailer will be named the 2022 America’s Retail Champion.

Honorees will be featured in a special Main Street exhibit at The Retail Experience and celebrated for their advocacy work at an exclusive dinner. This year’s program is sponsored by Affirm Inc., which is providing travel scholarships to Washington, D.C., for the five finalists.



For more than 20 years, The RAMAEs have honored small and large retailers, rookies and veterans, identifying hidden gems from all corners of the state.  Help us identify the businesses who deserve to be recognized for their resilience, innovation, customer service or going above and beyond to make the retail experience memorable.
