Northern Tea Merchants takes Chesterfield Retailer of the Year title
Northern Tea Merchants, the tea and coffee manufacturer based on Chatsworth Road, has been awarded the title of Chesterfield Retailer of the Year at the 2017 Chesterfield Retail Awards.
The business was one of the 14 winners that scooped at least one of the 17 prestigious awards.
The awards, organised by Destination Chesterfield, returned for the fourth year running and saw the successful retailers – Adorn Jewellers, Northern Tea Merchants and Marks and Spencer take home two awards on the night.
As well as Retailer of the Year, Northern Tea Merchants also took the title of Food and Drink Retailer of the Year and was shortlisted for the Independent Retailer of the Year award.
Cat and Ricky, Breakfast Show Presenters on local radio station Peak FM, hosted the awards which were, once again, a sell-out.
Peter Swallow, Chairman of Destination Chesterfield and Managing Director of Bolsterstone Plc, the company behind Chesterfield Waterside, said: “Chesterfield has a great retail offering and it is improving. The town has an enviable mix of both independent and high street names in the town centre which was one of the key reasons it was named as one of the UK’s top retail hotspots last year.
The Hot 100 UK Retail Locations ranking was compiled by location experts CACI exclusively for Property Week, a leading news magazine in the commercial and residential property market.
Peter added: “Property Week is a significant industry publication read by national and international investors. Already there is £1bn worth of investment happening in the borough and major projects such as Chesterfield Waterside, Peak Resort and Markham Vale, however Chesterfield’s ranking as a top retail hot spot will bring the town further prominence.”
In recent years the Chesterfield’s retail offering has risen to prominence amongst shoppers and investors after featuring in a report compiled by the Local Data Company (LDC) detailing the UK’s top 10 of towns and cities with the lowest shop vacancy rates.
