FOR the second year in a row, visitors to Festival Place could win a £250 gift card just for voting for their favourite store.

The FP Gold Retailer Awards gives customers the chance to choose their favourite retailers either online, via the Festival Place website and gives stores and opportunity to see how customers rate their service.

There are 12 different categories which shoppers can vote on including menswear store of the year, specialist store of the year and store of the year.

The stores with the most votes in each category will win a £200 Festival Place gift card as well as an award to mark their achievement. GAME received the prestigious Store of the Year award last year.

A GAME spokesperson said: “Last year’s win was a real high for our team and we’re looking forward to this year’s ceremony. Ultimately, it comes down to how much our customers trust and value the work that our team does on a daily basis.

“These awards are a great way for our community of gamers to let us know how we are getting on, while also providing our staff with a further incentive to continue to provide the very best service.”

By casting a vote, one lucky shopper could be in with the chance of winning a £250 gift card for the shopping centre. Each person who votes will be entered into a draw with the chance to win the prize.

Centre director at Festival Place, Steven Connolly said: “We were really pleased with the success of last year’s awards and couldn’t wait to run them again.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity to celebrate our retailers’ successes and to honour the shining stars of our retailer community. We wish all of our retailers the best of luck.”

Voting will close on October 1.
