With so many popular stalls in St Albans it is no surprise the markets trader category usually receives the most nominations in our Retailer of the Year competition.

A number of stalls have been nominated already with each hoping to emulate the success of Poulter's Fish which claimed this category award in 2011.

The consistent quality and friendly service meant the stall fended off strong competition from five other finalists, including 2010 winner Sycamore Wholefoods.

Dave Williams, who has worked on Poulter's stall for more than eight years, said: “It is a great feeling to be recognised like this. It is a great place to work because it’s a very friendly stall. We have a great relationship with our customers and we really enjoy serving them very day.

This category is once again sponsored by St Albans Civic Society.

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.

All nominations should be received by midnight on May 11. 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.

The competition is a joint initiative between the Review, St Albans District Council, St Albans Civic Society and St Albans District Chamber of Commerce.

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.

Or simply call 09011510856 and leave your nomination and details when prompted.
