Shoppers can vote for their favourite Hartlepool stores
From top store to the best display in a shop window '“ you can put your own favourites in the running for honours.
Officials at the Middleton Grange shopping centre in Hartlepool are calling on shoppers to nominate their most cherished stores and retail experiences.
The shopping centre’s annual Retail Awards are back and bosses at the shopping centre have described them as a chance to reward stores which go the extra mile to make a difference.
The Retail Awards recognise outstanding retailing and customer service and are open to shops of all sizes.
That means everyone from national stores to independent retailers and traders from the Market Hall could be in the running.
The categories available are Favourite Store, Favourite Indoor Market Stall, Favourite Shop Window Display, Best Customer Service Experience and Star Middleton Grange Employee.
Centre manager Mark Rycraft said: “The awards are always well received, as they bring our shoppers and retailers together.
“It’s always wonderful to be able to give recognition where it is well deserved.”
The deadline to make nominations is July 3. After that, an awards ceremony will be held in August to reward the winners.
Shoppers can vote by posting nominations at the customer service desk, which is now on the upper level of the Middleton Grange Shopping Centre.
