Best Shop under £500k

This new award will celebrate best practice in museum and heritage retailing. This award is open to all heritage attraction shops with a turnover less than £500k.


Looking not only at profit but the entire retail operation over the past year, this award aims to honour the leaders in our sector. In convincing the judges of why you should scoop the Best Shop Award, please provide turnover and profit figures as well as percentage profit increase on your previous year, if relevant. Please also demonstrate how your shop is on brand and how it contributes effectively to your organisation’s mission. We would like to hear how effectively your shop acts as a window for the museum and its narrative.  Your shop can be permanent, temporary or online or a combination of all three. In all instances the judges will be looking for impressive results as well as considering the overall customer experience.
