Winchester BID is fiercely proud of the Independent shopping scene in the city and makes a huge effort to support independent businesses. That’s why we are delighted to be sponsoring the Independent Business of the Year award at the prestigious Winchester Business Excellence Awards 2016.
This award aims to recognise the substantial ongoing contribution that independent businesses make in growing and sustaining our economy as well as providing excellent customer experiences.
A mystery shopper from Shop Anonymous* will visit the finalists in this category to assess the business on key criteria. The judges will be looking for:
- A demonstration of ‘first class’ customer service
- Consistently excellent market and customer engagement
- Innovation and differentiation of products and services
- Ability to adapt to consumer and trading trends
Entry to this category is open to all independent organisations (less than 5 outlets) that pay the BID levy, with an operating business address within the Winchester BID area.
*All finalists will receive a free report and follow-up meeting with Shop Anonymous.
If you are an independent business within the BID levy area, entering the award could put your brand in the spotlight and provide valuable publicity. Visit the website to learn more and to enter.
