Best Birding Retailer Award Winner

Wingard’s Market, Wings & Things Department of Lexington, South Carolina was named a Best Birding Retailer Award winner at the 2017 Wild Bird Expo™.  A panel of industry experts and peers picked Wingard’s as the Best New Birding Department or Store open 24 months or less.

Nominees for the awards were submitted by a Candidate Search Committee who were tasked with determining who, in their opinion, demonstrated conscientious effort in advancing the birding hobby and industry.  The required criteria to qualify as a nominee included several factors such as: sales volume (total and per / sq. ft.), growth history and advancement of new trends, best practice systems, product selection offered, merchandising, advertising, customer communication and education (websites, social media, etc.), and overall impact within their community and beyond.  All winning retailers were selected by birding industry leaders. 

Wingard’s is a 50-year-old garden center which has been consistently recognized in the top 100 nationally.  In October 2016 they expanded with the creation of a highly successful birding department.  They’ve helped create local bluebird trails, support the Carolina Wildlife Center, hold seminars and workshops on a variety of wild bird and nature topics, operate a website dedicated to providing information on local wildlife, and they participate in many wild bird and nature awareness programs.
