Fermanagh and Omagh District Council has launched the 2020 Retail Heroes Awards in support of the local retail sector.  The awards, which aim to recognise the resilience and commitment shown by local businesses in response to Covid-19 over the last number of months. During lockdown and beyond we have all gained a new appreciation for the businesses and facilities right on our doorstep, especially our local retailers, who have gone above and beyond for their customers throughout this extremely difficult time.

Whether it was starting a home delivery service, developing their online business, or finding safer ways for customers to shop in person, it’s been inspiring to witness the resilience of our local businesses, and their determination to carry on providing excellent, safe service even in the most difficult of circumstances.

We want to shine a light on your resilience and remind our local shoppers that you are here you are open and that it has never been more important to support your local retailers.

In spite of the uncertainty and restrictions, our retail community continues to step up to the mark – opening their doors, welcoming customers with a smile and providing safe spaces where we can shop with confidence.

This campaign will give the public a chance to nominate their local Retail Hero.

Nominations to the 2020 Retail Heroes Awards are now open. Awards are open to retailers across the District – the winning business, the ‘Retail Superhero’ will receive a tailored marketing package worth £1,000 and the runner up receiving £500 of marketing support with both receiving a special Retail Hero Award.


The Retail Heroes Award nominees will be profiled on the Council’s Social Media channels and the winners will be announced on Monday 14 December 2020, the closing date for nominations is Friday 11 December 2020.
