Retailer of the Year Award Sponsors

18th January 2018 | News

GDA is to sponsor the main prize at the first Fox Valley Retail Awards.

Fox Valley is the acclaimed £50 million development on a 28 acre former steelworks site in Stocksbridge, that has brought a major new retail and office development to the North Sheffield community.

The ceremony will be held on March 7th in the centre’s popular Pontis Italian Kitchen restaurant.

And GDA, which relocated its HQ to Fox Valley when the site was officially launched two years ago, will be sponsoring the biggest award of the night – the Retailer of the Year.

Eight awards are up for grabs to recognise the outstanding businesses and individuals at Fox Valley which have gone above and beyond for their customers over the last year.

The winners in most categories will be decided by a panel of independent expert judges who are all highly qualified in the fields of retail and customer service. The Retailer of the Year is to be decided by a public vote however, which people are being encouraged to do on the Fox Valley website.

“When we relocated to Fox Valley, one of our main priorities was to become part of a very special community of businesses in an area of north Sheffield that we recognised as ready for growth and renewed success,” said GDA Managing Director Alistair Farrant.

"We believe these awards are exactly what is needed to celebrate an extraordinary success story, one that has brought new life and opportunities to Stocksbridge.

As such, we knew straight away that GDA had to be involved and we cannot wait to see who will be the winner of the first Fox Valley Retailer of the Year award."
