Fast food fried chicken emporium KFC has been named the Large Retailer of the Year at the National Retail Association's (NRA) Rewards for Excellence ceremony on the Gold Coast. Specsavers, Kikki.K, Supercheap Auto and Footlocker also picked up gongs at the event, which had an Arabian Nights theme.
“We’re thrilled to be able to bring back Australia’s largest and most prestigious retail awards to recognise the deserving individuals and businesses who are setting a whole new standard of excellence in the sector,” said NRA CEO Trevor Evans.
“After years of downturn in retail, we are finally starting to see a consistent gradual incline in sales across the board, and it’s a credit to creative and passionate retailers like many of our Rewards for Excellence winners who are determined to see their businesses flourish.
“As the consumer environment continues to evolve, we need to look to those who are displaying innovation and putting their people and customers first, to ensure we are all continuing to perform to the best of our abilities.”
