The Reading Retail Awards, now in their 5th year, are designed to recognise and reward outstanding retailing in the borough of Reading. They are impartial, independent and objective awards designed to engage all retailers large or small. The awards are free to enter and whether a large department store or independent beauty salon, baker, cafe or car dealer, those in the centre of town, out of town, rural locations and virtual stores based in the Reading Borough are eligible to take part. The awards feature five winners chosen solely by public vote and seven industry awards open to retailer nominations. All the winners are chosen by an independent judging panel of experts and all those short-listed will be invited to attend our glittering awards ceremony at The Hilton Hotel, Reading. As a special thank you to the public for having their say, one lucky voter chosen at random will receive one hundred pounds to spend on their next shopping spree!
