Welcome to the Wolverhampton Independent Retail Excellence Awards, a celebration of all our great local independent businesses.

The City of Wolverhampton is a thriving city, full of character and diversity, with amazing and dedicated independent retailers, cafés, bars and restaurants and these independent businesses are part of what makes Wolverhampton great. They play a central role in the attraction and personality of not only the city centre, but also the local scene.

These awards are all about celebrating and praising the entrepreneurial spirit, dedication and hard work involved in running and managing a successful independent business. They also aim to recognise the loyalty and dedication of the staff that work within this exciting sector.
