Uffda Shop receives statewide honor
Monday, December 04, 2017
In addition to celebrating its 40th anniversary, the Uffda Shop recently noted an additional festdag.
The Minnesota Retailers Association announced the winners of the 2017 Minnesota's Retail Champion Awards in September. The Uffda Shop won for best customer experience.
Association President Bruce Nustad said the Uffda Shop's nomination came from within the Red Wing community by a peer organization.
"The Uffda Shop is a mainstay of Red Wing and it embraces Minnesota's Scandinavian history through not only its products but its customer experience," Nustad said. "Visitors from around the world flock to the Uffda Shop to see its unique products and interact with owners Sara and Arne Skyberg, and their team. The Uffda Shop creates a uniquely Minnesota customer experience."
The MnRA started the award process by putting out a statewide call for nominations in 12 categories. A panel of peer judges reviewed nearly six dozen nominations and selected the top nominee in each category.
