Retailers, show us your best

Housewares retailers of all types are invited to submit their entries for the Excellence in Retail Display, Initiative and Training Awards – part of the Excellence in Housewares Awards 2022.

“Whether you own one cookshop or represent a national chain, don’t hold back in shouting from the rooftops when it comes to your success stories,” says Jo Howard, editor of Progressive Housewares, organiser of the EIH Awards. “We want to showcase, celebrate and reward the fabulous feats delivered by the UK’s proactive and vibrant retailers, whether in-store or online.”

Images depicting window and in-store displays, images and screenshots relating to in-store and online initiatives, and summaries of retail initiatives and training activities can be emailed (or sent via WeTransfer if above 10MB) directly to Jo Howard at with the subject heading ‘EIH22 Retailer Entry’.

The deadline for submissions is Friday June 17.

Display images should be high resolution print quality (taken on a ‘large’ phone or camera setting, or 300dpi, at least 1MB per photo in size.) Entrants should send between three and six display photos, which can be of one specific theme or of different displays that are current or since July 2020.

Window images may also be considered for the UK’s entries into the gia Top Window Award 2022 – more information HERE.

For Excellence in Retail Initiative and Excellence in Training Awards, entrants should email short summaries of their initiative and training activity – either current or since July 2021.
