Created: 07 August 2018
Small shopkeepers in our area can now enter the Best Small Shops Competition.
The Best Small Shops Competition celebrates the creativity of small shops and the central role they play in our local community. The competition is open to any small shop operating in the UK and is free to enter.
Shopkeepers can nominate their business online until Sunday 9th September. There will be a shortlist of 25 applicants that will be chosen by a panel of representatives from the independent retail industry.
The judges will be looking for evidence of a small shops’ entrepreneurial spirit, ways that they have been innovative in their business and what they have done to have a lasting positive impact on their community.
The shortlisted small shops will be invited to a Parliamentary Reception on the 13th November 2018 to meet their Member of Parliament and find out who will be crowned the Best Small Shop for 2018.
Andrew adds, "I encourage our shopkeepers to put their businesses forward for the Best Small Shops Competition.
"This competition is a great opportunity to celebrate the fantastic role that small shops play in our local communities."
