Suppliers: Vote for your TOP retail partners

Where would we be without the retailers? According to the bustling Exclusively Housewares show last week, we’d be pretty lost without them. They turned up in droves and made time to ensure they were stocking your latest ranges, aware of what’s new and heading their way, and engaged with each-other to work as a community of specialist retailers – of all shapes and sizes.

Suppliers now have the chance to reflect and reward, by offering nominations into the Retail Award categories. The nominations can be made online, here.


Independent Cookshop of the Year (up to three stores)
Nominees should be an independent bricks and mortar retailer up to three stores, whose main business is that of a cookware shop.

Multiple or Small Group Retailer of the Year (four or more stores)
Nominees should be a specialist or non-specialist retailer of housewares products excluding department stores, garden centres or supermarkets.

Best Garden Centre Retailer of Housewares Products
Recognising the growth in the housewares product offer at garden centres, this category is not defined by number of stores but may be entered by garden centre retailers who have paid particular attention to the house and home sector.

Best Supermarket Retailer of Housewares Products
For the national supermarkets, this award will recognise a retailer’s specifics efforts for its house and home offer in store and online.

Excellence in Online Retailing
Nominees should be retailers of housewares who use the internet as a highly significant or primary route to its consumers.

Excellence in Retail Training
This award is for a retailer’s approach to training for its team. This can be an on-going training programme or specific training initiative that has been instigated (or been particularly significant) in the last year.

Retail Employee of the Year
Nomination of retail employees who make a difference with their enthusiastic, attentive and knowledgeable service (and who could be considered ‘the unsung heroes’ of the shop floor or customer services team.)
