NZ Hardware Awards confirm Mitre 10 on track for success

Hardware retailer Mitre 10 has been recognised at the 2014 Hardware Awards, including Mitre 10 MEGA Hornby winning the coveted prize of Retail Store of the Year (over 4,000m2).

Jacqui Keys from Mitre 10 MEGA Hornby won Trade Account Manager of the Year, while Vincent Indo from Mitre 10 MEGA Kapiti won Retailer of the Year and Luck Stock from Mitre 10 MEGA Albany won Young Retailer of the Year.

Troy Scanlon from Mitre 10 Westport won the Young Achiever Award for a young retailer showing promise for the future.

Open to all New Zealand hardware stores, the awards recognise excellence and best practice within the New Zealand industry and are judged by an expert panel of industry professionals.

General Manager Marketing Dave Elliott says the results confirm the 100 per cent New Zealand-owned co-op is on the right track.

“Recognition in the 2014 Hardware Awards is another sign of continued consumer trust in Mitre 10, building on our recent achievement of being voted the most trusted brand in New Zealand in home improvement retailing for the fifth time,” Mr Elliott said.

“To come out on top in these categories reflects the dedication to customers and the high standards of our in-store teams. Our winning stores have top teams who do a great job and they set a benchmark for other stores to match.

“Feedback from our customers indicates they enjoy our Mitre 10 MEGA store formats and product range so it is really great to also be recognised by our industry peers.”

The success follows on from the 2013 awards, where Mitre 10 won four awards, including Retail Store of the Year in both size categories.

Mitre 10 is also pleased that a number partner suppliers were recognised last night being named Supplier of the Year in their respective categories: Winstone Wallboards Ltd (Building Supplies category), Tui Garden (Garden), Accent Tools (hand & power tools), MiTek (hardware) and Valspar (painting and decorating).

The Hardware Awards are designed to recognise the achievements of New Zealand’s retailers in the hardware, builders’ supply and home décor stores. Open to all New Zealand hardware stores, the Awards recognise excellence and best practice in the industry and are judged by an expert panel. They reflect on overall success in New Zealand’s finest hardware retail stores.
