The retail finalists for the Progressive Preschool Awards 2015 have been revealed.
The retail categories judging for the Progressive Preschool Awards 2015 took place in London last week, with an independent validation panel made up of industry experts discussing the nominated retailers in each category.
“This third year of the Progressive Preschool Awards has seen the highest level yet of retail nominations, both in terms of quality and quantity,” said Rob Willis, publisher of Progressive Preschool.
“An interesting mix of tenacious independent retailers as well as the high street giants gave the debate panel a hard time in reaching the finalists – a true testament to the strength of retail in this particular sector.”
