The winners were announced at the Retailer Awards Dinner, which took place at the O2 Victoria Warehouse in Manchester.
Russell Loveland, director of UK asset management at Pradera Lateral, asset managers of Trafford Centre, said: “Our retail partners are the heart of the centre, so we relish the opportunity to celebrate their dedication and high levels of service with these awards. This year is particularly special as it is Trafford Centre’s 25th anniversary year, and we’re delighted that it continues to be the biggest and best shopping centre in the region, with major flagship fashion stores, an unrivalled leisure offering and record-breaking restaurant sales.
