Foyles leads the way at Bookseller Industry Awards

13th April 2011

Independent retailer Foyles has racked-up five nominations for this year's 2011 Bookseller Industry Awards, including General Chain or Bookselling Company of the Year.

With just 17 awards on offer in total, the bookseller is head and shoulders above its retail rivals.

Foyles was the top retail prize winner at last year's Bookseller Industry Awards and is no doubt hoping to build on its previous successes.

Commenting on the nominations, Bookseller's editor-in-chief Neill Denny said: 'The overall standard of entries was incredibly high despite, or perhaps because of, the turbulent times we are living through.

'It will be very tough job choosing the winners from such a strong field.'

As well as the General or Chain Bookselling Company of the Year award, which is sponsored by author Martina Cole, Foyles has received nominations in the Children's Bookseller of the Year category, two nods for Manager of the Year and has been shortlisted for the Sue Butterworth Young Bookseller of the Year accolade.

Foyles was pipped to the post for the most nominations by publishers Penguin and Random House - both of whom received six.

The awards will be handed out during the Book Industry Conference at London's Park Lane Hilton on May 16th.
