July 18th saw the first ever Wolverhampton Independent Retail Excellence (WIRE) Awards take place at WV1, Molineux Stadium, Wolverhampton.
The Awards celebrate and praise the entrepreneurial spirit, dedication and hard work involved in running and managing a successful independent business in Wolverhampton.
Hosted by Signal 107’s Dicky Dodd the awards ceremony was a great success with a wide range of retailers in attendance, all proud to be very much a part of the City of Wolverhampton. As well as coming together to celebrate one another’s achievements we were also able to come together to support the awards nominated charity Promise Dreams. Steve Bull MBE, patron of the very special charity, was in attendance, leading the fund raising.
Back in June this year we were lucky enough to learn we had been shortlisted in the award category ‘Best Dressed Shop or Outlet’. The Best Dressed Shop or Outlet category was to be awarded to the independent retailer with the most attractive and creative product displays in store or window settings, displays that are original, imaginative, inspired and inventive.
We couldn’t be more proud than to announce that on the night we went on to win!!! We would like to pass on our special thanks to Yarrington the sponsor of our award category and all at the Wire Awards. We would also like to pass on a huge congratulations to all of the retailers involved.
Looking forward to next year!
