Most of us love to shop - and there are hundreds of businesses and staff that make that a fantastic experience in Wakefield.
While our city may not have the sprawling scope of a major centre like Leeds, as a compact alternative where you can still access the major retailers and unique independent stores, Wakefield is right up there as a shopping destination.
It is a celebration of this retail offering that the Wakefield Retail Awards is based on.
Last year’s inaugural event was fantastically well represented, and we want to make sure that this year’s goes one step further.
The scheme is run with the support of Ridings Shopping Centre, the Wakefield City Centre Partnership and the Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce, and will culminate in a three-course meal and awards event at The Space on Saturday May 17.
Now we need you to put forward your business for as many of the award categories as you think relevant. You can also nominate someone else’s shop if you are a satisfied customer!
All you have to do is go to www.wakefieldretailawards.co.uk and complete the entry form. Closing date for nominations is Monday April 7.
