As Warren Lomaxjoint managing director of Max Publishing (which owns and organises The Henries) commented: “It is great to see such a strong early torrent of votes from indies, from all over the UK – but with three weeks still to go before voting closes there is still much to play for. Calling all indie retailers, please tell us which publishers deserve the recognition!”

The last year and a bit has presented many challenges to all, but as Warren added “while some publishers have let their service levels slip, others have strived to find a way through, ensuring they still deliver a high level of service to their retail customers.”

The finalists of the Best Service to the Independent Retailer category of The Henries 2021 will be announced in late August while the winners will be unveiled (along with all the product categories) at a Boogie Wonderland-themed awards extravaganza on Thursday 7 October, which will take place at The Royal Lancaster HotelLondon.
