NFRN to honour heroes of retail
NFRN national president praised independent retailers for providing their communities with a vital lifeline
The NFRN has launched a new awards scheme for stores that have “gone above and beyond for their customers and communities during the coronavirus pandemic”.
The Shop Local Shop Little Heroes awards, in association with Booker, Boost and Mondelez, are open for entries by independent retailers until 31 July.
NFRN national president Stuart Reddish said: “These have been incredibly hard times for independent retailers, but members have disregarded the risk to their health and safety to provide their communities with a vital lifeline.
“The extra lengths independent retailers are going to – not just to stay open, but to keep their customers fed and safe – are truly inspirational. They must not be the forgotten heroes of the Covid-19 outbreak. We’ll make sure they get the recognition they deserve.”
Retailers can enter or be nominated by members of their community by completing the form on nfrnonline.com
