The inaugural Sheffield City Centre Retail Awards were held on Sunday 10th November, and your independent and individual department store on The Moor was nominated in a number of categories. We're ecstatic to tell you that we won the Large Retailer of the Year award.

Our Store Manager, David Cartwright, said "it's truly an honour to receive this award, and it's recognition for the great work our in-store team do on a daily basis for our wonderful customers. I'd also like to pass on the thanks of everyone here to our suppliers, concessions and, of course, loyal customers for supporting us over the years. Everyone has a part to play in our proud win."

We beat off stiff competition from the likes of John Lewis and Primark to win the award, which makes it all the more special for us as an independent family-owned and run business. We hope to see you in store again soon at your award winning Sheffield department store (we really think that has a ring to it).
