The seventh Retailer of the Year competition has been launched and the nominations are coming in.
This year's competition will once again culminate in a glittering gala awards evening at the Alban Arena on June 23.
This week, we are focusing on our Fashion and Accessories category, which is once again sponsored by the Maltings shopping centre.
With so many clothes shops in the city centre it is easy to see why people in the district are so well dressed.
But which one is the best?
Last year Carousel The Handbag Boutique took the category award.
You can nominate retailers in one of six categories - fashion and accessories; specialist shops; markets trader; restaurants and cafes, food and drink and hair and beauty. The traders must be based within the city centre.
All nominations should be received by midnight on May 9. 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.
The competition is a joint initiative between the Review, St Albans District Council, St Albans Civic Society and St Albans District Chamber of Commerce.
You can now nominate traders by tweeting our dedicated Retailer of the Year page: @StAlbansROTY Simply tell us the name of the shop/cafe/restaurant/trader and where they are based.
You can also nominate a retailer via text. Just text the word ‘retailer’ followed by the name and address of the business to 80360. Texts cost 50p.
Or you can nominate a retailer by filling out the form in this week’s Review and posting it to the news desk or by emailing your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org
