Calling all shop owners, retailers and staff - this is the last chance to send in your entry to this year’s only major local retail awards event.
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 event was fantastically well represented, and we want to make sure 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!
Express Editor Mark Bradley said: “Speaking to last year’s winners I know how much these awards meant to them, and they have been a great promotional tool both to tell people how great their business is and also to encourage and motivate their staff. ”
Go to www.wakefieldretailawards.co.uk for more information and to complete the entry form.
The closing date for nominations has been extended to Friday, April 11.
