All booksellers are very welcome to take part in this competition which aims at highlighting one bookshop for excellence in a range of areas. The deadline for entries is 15 January 2016.
Criteria: The judges will be looking for excellence in a range of areas, including customer service, staff knowledge, events, display, outreach, atmosphere, innovation, imagination, incorporation of digital, style and flare.
Who is eligible: Independents or chain branches whose primary business is outside the UK. Nominees do not have to be English language booksellers – though these are welcome too – and there is no stipulation regarding turnover. Business viability will be recognised and entries from more remote locations are encouraged.
