The Oracle Retail Week Awards 2012 are now open for entries. The Awards - the biggest event in the retail calendar - will be held on March 15 next year at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel.

There are 12 categories in the Awards, including Speciality Retailer of the Year, Non-store Retailer of the Year, Responsible Retailer of the Year and Store Manager of the Year. In addition there are five categories determined by our judging panel made up of some the UK’s leading retail figures.

You can also now buy tables at the dinner.

Winners last year included the John Lewis Partnership, Shop Direct, the Co-op and former Tesco chief executive Sir Terry Leahy.
