Top Shop Awards
Entries are open now!
Top Shop is our sector's shop window, recognising, celebrating and encouraging retail excellence. We've listened to you, carefully considered your feedback, and have made some big changes - new categories, new entry criteria and new judging processes. No matter where you are in New Zealand, how big or small your store is, online or bricks & mortar, you can be part of this industry-leading annual competition recognising the very best of our country's retailers.
Did you know Top Shop is open to any retailer from anywhere in New Zealand? In 2014 we expanded the competition to enable all Kiwi retailers to have the opportunity to enter. So, no matter where you are - Kaitaia or Gore and anywhere and everywhere in between - you have the chance to be recognised as New Zealand's leading retailer! Our Top Shop regions have been designed with travel distance in mind to ensure you can make it to your closest awards ceremony.
This year, for the first time, you can enter your store (or stores) in up to three categories, plus People's Choice. Or simply choose the one category that best fits your business. In 2016 and beyond we will continue to evolve the category structure to reflect global best practice in retail awards programmes, while keeping it quintessentially Kiwi. Check out the 2015 categories to see where you fit.
