Small shopkeepers in Newport East can now enter the Best Small Shops Competition, celebrating the creativity of small shops and the central role they play in their local community.
The Best Small Shops Competition is open to any small shop operating in the UK. This applies to all non-corporate businesses selling goods or services to the public for use or consumption rather than for resale, from a business rated premises in the UK.
The competition is free to enter and all shops who enter will also be promoted to consumers through an online Indie Retail Directory.
Shopkeepers can nominate their businesses until Sunday 9th September via www.bestsmallshops.co.uk. A shortlist of 25 of the most impressive applications will be shortlisted by a panel made up of established representatives from the independent retail industry.
The judges will be looking for evidence of a small shops’ entrepreneurial spirit, ways that they have been innovative in their business and what they have done to have a lasting positive impact on their community.
The shortlisted small shops will be invited to a Parliamentary Reception on the 13th November 2018.
It would be great to see lots of small shops from Newport East entering the competition.
The entries for 2018’s Best Small Shop competition are now open. You can submit your entry at www.bestsmallshops.co.uk. Entries close on Sunday 9th September 2018.
