THE prizes have been handed out to the top shops and staff who work in them at Glenrothes’ shopping mall, reports MIKE DELANEY.
The Kingdom Centre staged the second annual Star Awards ceremony at Rothes Halls, following a public vote in two of the categories which was carried out in conjunction with the ‘Gazette’ with readers who submitted nominations winning entry to a prize draw where £150 worth of vouchers to spend at shops in the mall were on offer.
Those categories, which were sponsored by Fife Council, saw Jessop Jewellers take the best independent and Dorothy Perkins, the top chain store prizes.
Mall marketing manager, Anna Bluman, said: “The awards are designed to celebrate and reward the hard work and fantastic efforts put in by all of our tenants.
“This is the second year that we have run the awards and it was extremely well supported.
“We had an increased number of entrants and overwhelming demand for tickets.
“We increased the numbers this year from 250 to 300 guests and everyone that attended seemed to thoroughly enjoy the evening.
“Congratulations to all of the winners and a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who came along and supported the event.
“I would also like to express our thanks to our partners and sponsors, including the ‘Glenrothes Gazette’.”
