Neighbourhood Retailer Awards

Enjoying 16 years of celebrating local independent retailers, the Neighbourhood Retailer Awards is the most prestigious event of its kind in the country.

Developed by the industry’s most-read publication for the grocery sector, the NR Awards have been built on the success of Neighbourhood Retailer magazine, recognising NI’s most innovative retailers who make an outstanding contribution to the sector through innovation and quality service.

The annual NR Awards marks one of the most important dates on the local retailing calendar, raising standards and acting as a benchmark for industry success.

It’s awards and certificates are proudly displayed in superb stores across the region, validating the hard work, dedication and entrepreneurial spirit of NI’s leading convenience and grocery shops.

Over 400 entries are received each year for 18 individual categories – including the Retailer of the Year and the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award, recognising the sector’s most influential figures.
The NR Awards are independently and rigorously judged by Spotcheck and widely accepted as the premier event for the industry both locally and nationally.
