Cast your vote in Marshall's Yard retail park annual awards in Gainsborough
The best businesses at a town shopping centre will be honoured at an awards ceremony - and Echo readers have the chance to choose their favourite.
Gainsborough's Marshall's Yard retail park will host its third annual awards ceremony next month.
The event will be held at the centre's on-site restaurant Prezzo on Tuesday, March 19.
Eight separate categories are up for grabs, rewarding outstanding businesses for their hard work and dedication throughout the year.
The event is being staged as Marshall's Yard prepares to celebrate its sixth "birthday" at Easter.
This year's categories are: Centre Retailer of the Year, Manager of the Year, Green Business, Customer Service Team, the Shining Star Individual Award, Most Improved Business, the Community Engagement and Team Investment awards.
And the sought after Retailer of The Year Award – voted for by the public – is being sponsored by Lincolnshire Media, publishers of the Lincolnshire Echo and its West Lindsey edition.
Other category sponsors in this year's awards are Marshall's Yard's legal firm Sills and Betteridge, Pygott and Crone, Elite Signs, Waste Cost Reduction Services and PDM Developments.
So while staff and managers at the stores and businesses at Marshall's Yard can nominate each other, the coveted Retailer of the Year will be picked by shoppers and Echo readers.
With new additions to the centre including Browns of York and Card Factory since the last awards evening, shoppers have more than 30 outlets to nominate.

All voters are automatically entered into a free prize draw and have the chance to win £50 of Marshall's Yard shopping vouchers.
Marshall's Yard centre manager Jackie Helliwell said: "It has been a challenging year for many businesses.
"But we know how hard everyone here at Marshall's Yard works to deliver great customer service, day in and day out. So this really is an opportunity to reward those who stand out.
"We had a great response last year and everyone has been asking when we are holding the 2013 awards.
"We are really pleased to have some great sponsors joining us this year and delighted that Lincolnshire Media are sponsoring our People's Choice Award and we're hoping for a really good response from our shoppers."
The winners will be announced in the Lincolnshire Echo on Thursday, March 21.
