The Elmbridge Retail Awards are back for their eighth successive year to champion the outstanding local retailers in our high streets and town centres.
Voting is now open and shoppers can vote for their favourite independent across seven categories:
- Best restaurant or cafe
- Best for hair and/or beauty
- Best for fashion
- Best deli or grocer
- Best for speciality products or gifts
- Green business of the year
- Best independent retailer
In addition for 2020, there is a new High Street Hero category to honour those businesses that provided their products to customers when the supermarkets were difficult to access, those businesses that donated to local food banks and those who during the pandemic went above and beyond.
Elmbridge Council has launched an initiative to recognise the service given by local shops during the lockdown. You can see below how you can vote for a particular local shop, such as the Good Elf or the Stoke D’Abernon Post Office shop. It would be good to show our appreciation for our local shops who kept going during a difficult period.Ian Nelson, SDRA Chairman
Voting is now open and will run until 5pm on 30 September 2020.
