The Greats Gift Retailer Awards 2024 Are Open For Entry

The Greats Gift Retailer Awards 2024 – now celebrating their fabulous 22nd year – are open, once again setting out to recognise and reward the UK’s outstanding gift shops and gift departments.  The closing date for entries is 20 February, 2024.

1-Greats 2024 logo“Winning a Greats Gift Retailer award has become the pinnacle for gift retailers both large and small – a prestigious, coveted retail trophy that recognises excellence, initiative, innovation and professionalism at the highest level,” says Sue Marks, editor of Progressive Gifts & Home/ which organises and owns The Greats.

Continues Sue: “Therefore we’re on the lookout for the ‘greatest of the great’, those extra special gift and lifestyle retailers, department stores and garden centres that, despite the challenges over the past year – higher energy bills, petrol, increased mortgages and rents all reducing disposable income –  are nevertheless managing to stay at the top of their game. The Greats are a fantastic opportunity for gift retailers right across the board – from the tiniest village shop to the largest multiple – to bang the drum about their achievements over the past year. We know that there are some incredible retailers out there, and we want to hear from them!”
