Retail Birmingham Awards

Have you received outstanding customer service in Birmingham city centre? If the answer's yes, cast your vote to be in with a chance of winning a £250 shopping voucher! 

Retail Birmingham is celebrating outstanding achievements in retailing with the launch of its prestigious Retail Birmingham Awards 2014.
The awards, sponsored by the National Skills Academy for Retail at Solihull College, are designed to recognise and reward retailers and individuals working in Birmingham city centre for excellence in customer service, team work, emerging talent and leading in industry standards.

Shoppers can nominate a store, bar, restaurant, hotel, bank or any retail business in the city centre for excellent customer service online at from Monday 24 February – 22 March. Each person that nominates in the public vote will be automatically entered into a prize draw to win a £250 shopping voucher to spend in the city centre.

In addition to the public nominations, retailers can also nominate themselves, a colleague or their team for one of the three Retailer Awards:
• Retail Team of the Year
• Retail Talent of the Year (under 25)
• Retail Person of the Year

Following the closing date, public nominations will be counted and retail awards' winners will be carefully selected by a panel of industry and media judges including Chair of Retail Birmingham, Jonathan Cheetham and Senior Director of Employment and Skills at Solihull College, Shaun Hindle.

Each winner will be presented with a Retail Birmingham Award trophy and prize in their store by a special celebrity guest presenter during the week commencing 7 April. The winner of the £250 shopping voucher will be announced in early April.
