Sheffield is celebrating the best in City Centre retail.

Friday 15th November 2019

Amanda Phillips, Centre Manager of The Moor and also award judge, said: “This was the inaugural Sheffield City Centre Retail Awards - and what a way to begin. I am delighted how retailers have responded to this and want to thank the team including JPI Media for their support.

“This is a turning point in the city centres' fortunes, despite an uncertain retail landscape Sheffield is powering ahead.

"Of course I am delighted that two of our retailers were recognised with Wildwood winning the best Start Up Retailer of the Year award and Atkinsons for Large Retailer. Both well deserved and a reflection of what we offer here on The Moor - a mix of high street names and independents that reflects our city’s character and increases our draw as a destination to visitors. I am now looking forward to planning next years awards!"

Christine and Nicholas Atkinson proudly accepted the award, with Nicholas declaring that the shop, which has been trading for over 145 years, would always remain a go-to shopping destination in our city centre. 

"It is good to be able to stop occasionally and reflect on the positive effect recent years of investment have had, and to see how much our retail offer has improved."
