Retas 2015

The only awards that celebrates greeting card retailing in the UK

The Retas were launched by Progressive Greetings magazine in 2005, in recognition of the tremendous contribution that retailers both large and small, make to the success of the greeting card industry. Now in their twelfth year, The Retas are established as the summer event for the greeting card community. It brings together the entire greeting card industry for an afternoon of celebration.

The Retas recognise and celebrate not only the top independent and multiple greeting card retailers regionally and nationally, but also the new generation of retailers as well as employees of outstanding excellence.
