With 12 awards up for grabs, the ARA consulted a panel of expert judges and industry leaders to determine the finest in retail across three categories: Customer Experience, People in Retail and National Retailer. 

The ARA said the “high standard of submissions” this year was a testament to “the passionate retailers who contribute to the vitality of this thriving sector”.

This year’s awards will be held at Myer Mural Hall in Melbourne on August 15. With a theme of Retail Morphosis, the night will celebrate the progressive development of the retail sector into what the ARA describes as “a highly integrated network that is evolving and changing at a rapid rate”.
