Glee awards

Having beaten off stiff competition from dozens of entries to the Glee Awards, the shortlisted entries for the Retail categories have been announced.

As part of the new Glee Awards – which build on the success of the Glee New Product awards – the Retailer Awards have been designed to celebrate the best examples of innovation from the sector’s retailers.

Made up of four key categories – Buyer/ Buying Team Initiative of the Year; Sales & Marketing Initiative of the Year; Green Initiative of the Year; and Retailer of the Year – the Retailer Awards have been rigorously judged by a panel of industry experts. The judges are editor of Pet Product Marketing magazine, Sandra Pearce; GleeWire’s very own Mary Clarke, international retail guru, John Stanley; and Karl McKeever, from Visual Thinking Ltd.
