Proudfoot Wins Prestigious Award

Proudfoot Wins Prestigious Greeting Card Award

Proudfoot is one of the best greeting card retailers in the UK – it’s official!

The winners of this year’s greeting card retailing awards - affectionately known as The Retas - were revealed recently at a glittering awards event at London’s Dorchester Hotel, attended by almost 400 people.

The Retas awards, launched in 2005 by Progressive Greetings Worldwide magazine, recognise excellence across the whole greeting cards retailing spectrum, from independents on the high streets, to the mini chains, national multiples, garden centres, department stores, supermarkets as well as art and framing shops.

Proudfoot beat off the competition to win the Best Non-Specialist Independent Retailer of Greeting Cards – North Award.

All the winners in all the retail categories were arrived at as a result of huge nationwide nomination process. Earlier this year, over 2,000 Retas forms were distributed to UK greeting card publishers, who nominated the retailers that they felt to be the worthy winners in each of the categories.


All winners were revealed at a glittering Awards event, which was held at The Dorchester Hotel in London on Wednesday 12 July.

The event, which took on an ‘Enchanted Tails’ woodland animals and beasts theme, was hosted by comedian Charlie Baker.
