BETTA Home Living has announced Thomo's Betta North Rockhampton as its Retailer of the Year at the company's annual conference in Hong Kong.

Around 250 retailers and suppliers are attending the "That's Betta" conference which is being held at Langham Place Hotel from 22 April until 25 April.

The Rockhampton store is owned and operated by Gary and Carmel Thomasson.

The business opened in 1990 and to this day is still run by the family and managed by their son Christopher.

"Our Retailer of the Year has demonstrated sales growth year upon year and dedication to the Betta brand," BSR Group Chief Executive Officer Graeme Cunningham said.

"After 23 years of servicing the Rockhampton community with electrical appliances the family has forged a strong reputation for the service, knowledge and experience they offer for customers.

"Betta Home Living is undergoing some exciting changes and enjoying encouraging results and Thomo's Betta North Rockhampton has made a notable contribution to that success."

The North Rockhampton store offers a wide range of products including whitegoods, air-conditioners, fans, heaters, kitchen appliances, IT products, audio systems, televisions, and Hi-Fi products.

Betta's parent company, BSR Group, is in the process of rebranding its stores under the new Betta Home Living name to reflect its expansion into homewares and furniture.

The brand had previously been known as Betta Electrical.

Betta has over 200 stores nationwide and has been a part of the Australian community since 1961.
