Today’s Store in Northampton named in top 100 local shops

We are delighted to announce that Billy Kinder of Today’s Extra, Gloucester Avenue, Northampton was named as one of the top 100 local shops in the UK by leading business development programme for independent retailers, the Independent Achiever’s Academy (IAA).

The IAA Top 100 list celebrates both excellence and diversity in independent retailing across the UK. In order to compile the top 100, a rigorous evaluation process is put in place to include a comprehensive entry and mystery shop assessment. All entrants are judged across 12 core principles of retailing, from customer service through to retail innovation.

Top 100 retailer web“The way we shop has changed forever and consumers are finding great local retailers help them save time and money while providing supermarket levels of service, quality and keen prices. It is hard work for independent retailers but there are great rewards and the Academy shares proven ideas on how to set up your shop properly to win shopper loyalty,” said Newtrade managing director Nick Shanagher.

“Our list of the Top 100 recognises the hard work that retailers and their staff are putting in all over the country. We are lucky to be able to showcase what great local retail looks like, which helps family businesses to further develop and compete to serve their local communities.”

The IAA Top 100 provides a long list for the final judging that identifies the UK’s top local stores in each of the 12 categories and the overall top shop. A panel comprising the editors of Retail Newsagent and Retail Express and 12 leading industry experts will meet to select the winners. The final shortlist will be announced at betterRetailing LIVE on 6 October.

Retail entrepreneur and best-selling author Jeff Pearce will announce the winners at the IAA Gala Dinner in London on 26 November, which is one of the most keenly awaited events in the retail calendar.
