We did it! Northern Tea Merchants has been officially named as Chesterfield´s Food and Drink Retailer of the Year. This is the second year running we have won the prestigious title and we´re thrilled.
The award was clinched at the 2018 Chesterfield Retail Awards held on Wednesday 13 June at the town’s Winding Wheel.
And, of course, we weren’t the only winners on the night. Eleven business took home 15 awards at the glittering back tie awards, which were hosted by Peak FM’s breakfast show presenters Ricky and Becky.
Our Chatsworth Road neighbours, Blanc & Blanc Occasions and Dotique, were named Fashion and Footwear Retailer of the Year and Best Newcomer of the Year respectively, but the main title – Retailer of the Year – went to Specsavers Chesterfield.
Unfortunately, James Pogson, Director at Northern Tea Merchants was unable to attend, so Tracey Wallis from the Pekoe Café stepped in to accept the award on his behalf.
James commented: “It’s an honour to even be shortlisted in these awards as Chesterfield has such a thriving retail sector. To be able to come away with the Food and Drink Retailer award again is immense.
“Congratulations to my fellow Chatsworth Road winners and a big thank you to the team at Northern Tea Merchants for all your hard work, everybody that nominated us and all our customers past, present and future.”
