The IGD Small Store of the Year Award

About the Award

These stores will show where retailers have pushed boundaries, creating an innovative, original store format that improves the shopping experience. They’ve put shoppers first, using insight and new thinking to develop a unique store. The shortlist can include one-off outlets, pilots to be rolled out, or reinventions of existing stores.

How the winner is decided

Our analysts will visit over 750 stores, in more than 50 countries, during 2017/18. From these, each analyst will submit their nominees with supporting evidence of:

  • benefits for the shopper
  • what makes the store unique
  • where it fits into the retailer’s strategy
  • where it showcases new thinking

We will also look at stores suggested by retailers themselves. A panel of external experts and impartial senior IGD analysts will choose the winner.
