With such an array of food and drink outlets across the district, nominations are once again flying in for this category in our Retailer of the Year competition.
Last year Maltings-based Hatch was named the winner of the Food and Drink category which, this year, is sponsored by Alternative Barbering Co. in George Street.
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.
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.
The competition is a joint initiative between the Review, St Albans District Council, St Albans Civic Society and St Albans District Chamber of Commerce and is now in its seventh year.
This year's competition will once again culminate in a glittering gala awards evening at the Alban Arena on June 23.
All nominations should be received by midnight on May 9.
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.
Finally, 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
