MARAS 2018

The Manchester Arndale Retailer Awards took place on Sunday 4 November in our amazing new venue, The Principal Hotel. It was the biggest ever MARAs event, attended by over 270 guests!

It wasn’t just the venue that was different this year…following your feedback we revamped the awards process to be based all around shopper surveys. So winning a MARA is a true reflection of the great customer service your teams provide.
 

After delicious food and lots of celebrating…Bongo’s Bingo kept the crowds on the dance floor until the end with 80s and 90s chart classics, retro and ridiculous prizes, and retailer dance offs.
 

Huge congratulations to all 19 winners – it’s your hard work and dedication to customer service that makes the centre so successful!
