30 retailers make the shortlist for the 2019 Chesterfield Retail Awards

30 Chesterfield retailers are set to go head-to-head in the sixth annual Chesterfield Retail Awards next month

Organised by Destination Chesterfield, the awards will see shops, stores, barbers, clinics, market stalls and events battling it out to claim at least one of 15 titles.

In a record year for nominations, 17 businesses have been shortlisted for the first time in the prestigious Chesterfield Retail Awards, while three businesses - Geeks Headquarters Ltd, Specsavers and Adorn Jewellers of Chesterfield - hope to defend their 2018 titles.

This year also sees the introduction of a brand new category – Best Town Centre Event, sponsored by Spire Radio – which is designed to recognise the contribution events make to both increased footfall and the vibrancy of Chesterfield.

The awards shortlist follows a lengthy nomination and judging process. All the shortlisted businesses will also battle it out for the coveted overall title of Retailer of the Year 2019, sponsored by East Midlands Chamber (Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire). 

The winners of the awards will be announced at a black-tie awards ceremony held at Casa Hotel on Wednesday 19 June.

Peter Swallow, Chair of Destination Chesterfield said: “We were blown away by the amount of nominations in the awards this year; there were more than ever before, mirroring the year-on-year success of these popular awards. We now have a strong shortlist for the 2019 awards, which represents the town’s high-quality, varied retail scene. It promises to be an exciting evening at Casa Hotel next month.”
