The finalists in the Department Store of the Year category unsurprisingly represent some of the biggest and most iconic etail names on the British high street.
This year’s award has been presented to House of Fraser, which offers a comprehensive range of lingerie, from everyday basics to luxurious sets, and everything in between.
Over the last few months, the brand has refurbished several stores, with more planned for this year.
Within its lingerie departments, it has introduced an Ultimo shop-fit in its Oxford Street store and a Calvin Klein concession in Birmingham.
The biggest success of 2015 was House of Fraser’s Perfect Fit event, which saw the best sales on record in Spring 15, with lingerie trading +16% versus the previous year and +2% versus its optimistic forecast.
The shortlisted finalists in the Department Store of the Year category also included Debenhams, John Lewis and Fenwick Bond Street.
