We are really pleased with the ROG nomination in the TGO Award in the category Environmental or access initiative of the year.
A big thank you to all who helped to get ROG amongst the seven nominations in this category.
Taking a look at all the categories it is lovely to see so many really interesting nominations.
Independent retailer of the year – This category has 15 nominations. I am not surprised. The independent retailer is a very special part of the UK outdoor industry. Many of the nominations have been in business for years and as a collective their knowledge of our industries history is unsurpassed. All provide a tremendous personal service to their customers.
Good luck to you all.
Chain Retailer of the year – It would be unfair to say anything about this one. Our founder Sarah Howcroft is co-founder of Rohan and also nominated in the Outdoor Personality of the Year category. Rohan our partner in the very successful Gift Your Gear initiative is one of four other nominations in this category
Online retailer of the year Another big category with 10 nominations. Reflecting the trend in our buying habbits.Two stand outs from us are Alpkit a young and vibrant company and Bob and Rose at Backpackinglight for their dedication to lightweight kit, ‘minimum weight – maximum fun’ and their great podcasts.
