Retailer of the Year 2013 - time to nominate
10:49am Monday 18th March 2013 in News
As revealed last week our Retailer of the Year competition is back.
Now in its sixth year, the event has become a must for every trader in St Albans City centre.
Last year The Green Boutique, in the Village Arcade in High Street, scooped the overall prize. at our glittering gala awards evening at the Alban Arena.
And if you missed out on last year’s excitement, here is your chance to put that right - you can now nominate your favourite St Albans retailer.
Short-listed traders will be invited to this year’s awards evening which will also be held at the Alban Arena on June 24.
The six categories are: Specialist shops; Food and drink; Markets trader; Restaurants and cafés; Hair and beauty and Fashion and accessories.
All nominations should be received by midnight on May 10. After this date our team of mystery shoppers will hit the streets putting each and every retailer to the test. All nominated retailers will also be sent a window poster so they can blow their own trumpets.
Our committee will then choose a category winner and an overall winner.
To nominate a retailer text the name of the trader you want to nominate by texting the word ‘retailer’ followed by the name and address of the business to 80360. Texts cost 50p.
You can also nominate by filling out the form in this week’s Review or by emailing your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org
Members of the Retailer of the Year committee will be in St Albans City centre from 11am on Wednesday April 10 handing out nomination forms and free copies of the Review.
