High Street has top Cookshop

Rye Cookshop

Most Promising Newcomer

It’s official! Rye Cookshop is one of the UK’s best retailers for products for the kitchen, table and home, having reached the finals of the Excellence in Housewares Awards 2017.

The Excellence in Housewares Awards, now in its 18th year, are organised by Progressive Housewares magazine in conjunction with the Cookshop and Housewares Association. The Awards recognise and reward the UK’s top housewares retailers as well as the best new housewares products. There is also a Retailer Employee of the Year award for a hero of the shopfloor or customer service team.

“The Excellence in Housewares Awards are widely recognised as the ‘Oscars’ for the housewares industry,” commented Jo Howard, editor of Progressive Housewares magazine, “In an increasingly competitive market, it is so important to celebrate and reward outstanding and proactive housewares retailers from across the retail spectrum.” She reflected: “There was an unprecedented level of competition this year, and the high calibre of all of our finalists goes to show how retailers are upping the game to provide service and customer experience. Congratulations to all of our impressive line-up of finalists for the Excellence in Housewares Awards 2017.”

The Excellence in Housewares Retailer Finalists were decided on as a result of an exhaustive industry-wide poll of housewares suppliers along with self-nominations and submissions in certain categories. These were then short-listed before being validated by a panel of industry experts.

The winners will be unveiled at a lavish awards event on October 4 at the Royal Lancaster Hotel, London.
