Rothmans Petersfield is again sponsoring the category of Retailer of the Year in the town’s premier awards event, the Petersfield Awards.
Each year this initiative promotes this thriving and diverse destination for businesses, visitors and retailers. The awards event is becoming more popular every year with increasing numbers of people getting behind the initiative.
Indeed, more nominations for all the categories have been made than ever before, with more than 1,000 received. The nominations now go before a panel of independent judges to be shortlisted.
“We are delighted to sponsor Retailer of the Year,” Paul New at Rothmans Petersfield said. “This is an opportunity to showcase what really makes a retailer stand out. We will be looking at a range of factors, such as their achievements and customer service.
“While many areas are experienced a decline in the traditional high street, Petersfield is fortunate to be doing well, with a wide variety of outlets. The Retailer of the Year award is an opportunity to recognise the important role our retailers play at the heart of the community. With a diverse range of thriving shops from traditional hardware stores to exciting independent boutiques, there is much to celebrate for all lucky enough to live in this vibrant town.”
The winners will be announced at a spectacular Oscars-style awards ceremony on Friday 12 July. Nominees and winners will be in attendance and the event is also open to anyone else who wishes to attend. See http://www.petersfieldfest.com/wp/index.php/petersfield-awards/ for more information.
