The Go Outdoors Retailer of the Year Award is organised by the Outdoor Industries Assocation. 6000 consumers voted for 500 outdoor stores. This was whittled down to a shortlist of 21 stores, all of which were evaluated by mystery shopping company, Amber Arch.
Tony Wood, MD of Berghaus, the award's main sponsor, said:
"The Retailer of the Year award scheme is a very valuable tool for both individual companies and the whole outdoor industry alike. Looking at the wider industry perspective, we are all competing with the high street for the same pound in the pocket and there is a real need to raise the bar in terms of retail environment, product and overall professionalism."
The Tiso store won £1000 and a swanky trophy.
