A Bira member was presented with a gong at The Good Retail Awards 2021.

Salamander Cookshop in Dorset won the Bricks 'n' Clicks Award, at the virtual event on February 9, 2021.

The award - in association with Spring Fair and Modern Retail - recognised Salamander Cookshop's ability to successfully combine traditional shop sales while maximising online opportunities.

Judges said: "Salamander Cookshop sought to combine an enhanced conventional retail environment with the opportunities presented by online. They were able to demonstrate an intelligent blend of digital and in-store to provide an enhanced customer experience.

"Everything Salamander Cookshop do is focused on providing added value to their customers and they have successfully moved their classes and communities online during this difficult period.

"Salamander Cookshop is an independent retailer serving people who enjoy cooking, want to cook more or know someone who does! They stock a wide range of cookware, a vast range of tools and gadgets plus a range of gifts to capture the imagination."

The awards ceremony was held as part of the Spring Fair@home event - which under normal circumstances would have been held at the NEC in Birmingham - but was instead held virtually,

Other winners included Harts of Stur (Sustainability Initiative Award); Wyle Blue World (Instore Creativity Award); and Made in Ashford (Retail District Award).

Congratulations to Salamander Cookshop and all those who won awards.
