The BBC’s Catriona Shearer will reveal the winners of the East Renfrewshire Business Awards 2012 at a Gala Dinner on Thursday 7th June at the Redhurst Hotel, Giffnock.

Principal sponsor of the awards is the award-winning Avenue Shopping Centre in Newton Mearns, which has also sponsored the retailer of the year award for companies with less then 10 employees.

Michelle McCabe, Centre Manager at The Avenue Shopping Centre in Newton Mearns, said: “At the centre of things……always, The Avenue has a long and proud tradition of playing an active role in the local business community and, as such, is delighted to be principal sponsor of the East Renfrewshire Business Awards 2012.

“Acknowledging the important contribution made by local businesses to the success story that is East Renfrewshire is vital to the ongoing prosperity and progress of the district.

“That’s why The Avenue is so pleased to have the opportunity to show its support for the tremendous achievements of local businesses over the course of the last year – achievements made against a backdrop of a very challenging economic environment – and commends East Renfrewshire Chamber of Commerce on its initiative with the esteemed East Renfrewshire Business Awards 2012.”

Shortlisted in the retailer of the year award for companies with less then ten employees, sponsored by The Avenue, are Davos, New Life Pharmacy and Living For Style.

“Encouraging competition and rewarding success are central aspects of a dynamic local business sector and, judging by the volume and quality of entries across all award categories, it’s clear that East Renfrewshire’s local economy is as dynamic as they come,” said McCabe.

“I’ve been delighted – though not at all surprised – by the response from local businesses to these awards and the exceptionally high standard of entries.”
