Top of the shops: here are the EIH retailer finalists

The Excellence in Housewares Awards 2020 Retailer Finalists are revealed below, taking in large and small retailers from across the housewares retail spectrum and from all around the UK. The results follow an extensive process of nominations and submissions.

“It really is awe-inspiring to see this fantastic line-up of retailers that have worked so incredibly hard to engage, inform and inspire consumers,” said Jo Howard, editor of Progressive Housewares and HousewaresNews.net. “Stunning displays, exciting initiatives, outstanding training, amazing talent and service that goes above and beyond: there are so many wonderful stories behind these finalists, which is particularly heart-warming in this incredibly tough year. Congratulations to all of the teams that make up the EIH 2020 Retailer Finalists. We look forward to celebrating your achievements on December 9.”
