Richmond Heights, Missouri produce manager takes home $5,000 grand prize

RICHMOND HEIGHTS, Mo., Nov. 3, 2022 – Each summer, the National Watermelon Promotion Board (NWPB) sponsors a Watermelon Retail Merchandising Contest and invites all retail chains, independent retailers and commissaries to submit entries in honor of National Watermelon Month in July. The contest, which ran through August, is used by NWPB to encourage and identify retailers who are showcasing watermelon’s benefits including health, value and versatility. 

This year, Schnucks Richmond Center Produce Manager Aaron Carroll, with support from his produce team and other store teammates, won the grand prize of $5,000 for the store’s “Back-To-School” themed display.

“I’ve taken third place and honorable mention in the past, but I knew this year it was time to win this for our company,” Carroll said. “It turned out to be better than I thought!”

“I am proud of Aaron and the team at Richmond Center for creating excitement for our customers and taking initiative to be the best they can be,” said Schnucks Vice President of Produce and Floral Mike Tipton.
