Highworth-based delicatessen Bloomfields fine food have been nominated in a brand new awards to recognise excellence in independent speciality retailers, and they need your help to win!
The Farm Shop & Deli Awards, in partnership with Olives Et Al, have been launched to recognise the very best standards in speciality retail and to celebrate the highest levels of service, product knowledge, initiative, innovation and community involvement.
Part of the judging criteria is public votes, so Bloomfields needs your backing to help them win. Votes are needed by Friday 6 September.
Tim Belcher, Partner at Bloomfields fine food, said: “We are delighted to be nominated for these prestigious awards.
"According to some high street shopping is dead, yet so many of our customers tell us how much they love to shop locally for local products. This is a great opportunity to promote great local food, good old fashioned customer service and local shopping for all.”
