Debenhams, H&M and Glasgow favourite, Kimble’s were among the stores voted ‘top of shops’ at St. Enoch Centre’s annual Retailer Awards.
The St. Enoch Retailer Awards were established to reward the centre’s stores and recognise their contribution to Glasgow’s retail success. The city’s Style Mile is the UK’s top shopping destination outside of London.
The awards, first staged in 2014 to mark the centre’s 25th anniversary, feature 14 categories, ranging from Mixed Fashion to Confectionery.
Winners in this year’s most coveted categories were decided by Glasgow’s greatest retail experts – shoppers – with more than 4,000 people casting a vote.
It was a double win for Debenhams who took home awards for Men’s Fashion and Mixed Fashion, while H&M came out on top for Ladies Fashion. Boots was crowned best for Health and Beauty while Kimble’s cafe, deli and chocolate shop scooped a triple win in the Confectionery, Best Use of Social Media and Food categories. Thomas Cook scored highest in the awards for Customer Service.
Stacey Hill of Disney Store was voted Best Team Member, while Claire Finlayson from Starbucks prevailed in the Best Store Manager category. Disney was awarded Best Children’s Store, Schuh Kids came top for Footwear and Barrhead Travel best for Travel.
Anne Ledgerwood, general manager of St. Enoch Centre, said: “With Glasgow’s reputation as one of the greatest retail destinations in the UK, it is crucial to recognise the contribution our retailers and their staff make to the city’s success. People really do make Glasgow and the retail sector continues to be vibrant as a result of the friendly staff welcoming shoppers to the city and taking their shopping experience to the next level.
“I’d like to congratulate all of the individuals and businesses that triumphed in our Retailer Awards, and thank the vast amount of shoppers who took time to enter our public vote. There are no greater experts than our shoppers and we appreciate their support tremendously.”
