Top Shop Awards

Single Page Banner Top Shop


Planning for the Retail Excellence Awards is underway.


In 2015 Retail NZ launched a revamped programme with new regions, new categories and new judging criteria. We're continuing the evolution of Top Shop and for the FIRST TIME, the final National Top Shop Awards Ceremony will be combined with the annual shop.kiwi Retail Forum in 2017.

With new categories, local and national recognition, we are looking forward to celebrating a great year of excellence in Retail. And this time, it's all about what you DO, not what you SELL. So no matter what type of retailer you are, there is an opportunity to enter and show you've got what it takes to be one of New Zealand's best.

Entries open in January 2017. We'll keep you up-to-date with key dates and entry criteria as we approach the open date.


About Top Shop


The Top Shop Retail Awards were established by Retail New Zealand in 1988 to encourage and promote excellence in retailing.

Since then, the programme has continually developed to incorporate a changing variety of categories, and regions. 

Top Shop is open to ALL retailers in New Zealand, big or small, online or bricks & mortar - no matter where you are - Kaitaia or Gore and anywhere and everywhere in between!
