The only awards that celebrate greeting card retailing in the ukThe Retas were launched by Progressive Greetings magazine as an annual awards programme in 2005, in recognition of the tremendous contribution that retailers both large and small, make to the success of the greeting card industry.
Recognising and celebrating not only the top independent and multiple specialist greeting card retailers regionally and nationally, The Retas awards also fanfare the many different types of retailers who do a fabulous job on the greeting card front – from supermarkets to department stores, gift shops to garden centres.
Entries and nominations are being sought for The Retas 2022. Greeting card retail stockists are being encouraged to enter (the deadline is April 14) while publishers and agents are being urged to nominate which greeting cards stockists they believe have gone the extra mile over the last year and deserve for their retailing prowess to be recognised.
The winners will be unveiled at a lavish afternoon awards event on Thursday 7 July, taking place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London. The Retas 2022 awards event (which this year is on a Mary Poppins-esque theme) will bring the greeting card community together for an afternoon of celebration and camaraderie. It brings together the entire greeting card industry for an afternoon of celebration.
