A nationwide search to find independent retailers who have gone above and beyond for their customers and local communities throughout the coronavirus crisis has been extended.

Now the deadline for entries for the Shop Local, Shop Little Heroes awards run by the Federation of Independent Retailers (NFRN) will be 5pm next Friday (August 14).

In association with Booker, Boost and Mondelez, the NFRN is looking to recognise  selfless independent retail superstars and their acts of kindness since March this year.

Judging will take place in September and finalists will be invited to a private luncheon at The Ritz Hotel in London later in the year when three winners will be announced.

NFRN National President Stuart Reddish said: “With only a week left to apply, I am urging anyone that knows a retail superstar to nominate them for our Shop Local Shop Little Hero awards.

“All of our members – that were able to remain open – have continued to risk their lives to serve their local communities throughout the coronavirus pandemic, and many have provided a lifeline service for their vulnerable and elderly customers.

“These awards are a fantastic way to celebrate the generosity, selflessness and bravery of independent store owners.

“Current nominations range from those supporting local hospitals and care homes, to those offering key workers discounts and creating delivery services for vulnerable members of the community.”

The awards are open to NFRN members only.  Entry forms and more details can be found at:
