Wiggle Shortlisted for Oracle Retail Week Awards 2012

PORTSMOUTH, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Nov. 25, 2011) - Wiggle is in the running for the title of Online Retailer of the Year at the prestigious Oracle Retail Week Awards 2012. The online bikes specialist and triathlon retailer is one of six companies to be shortlisted, with winners being announced at an awards ceremony on March 15 next year.

This is the second year Wiggle has reached the final stages of the Oracle Retail Week Awards and with the likes of Ocado and Kiddicare shortlisted for the title, competition is likely to be tough. Last year Wiggle won the Product Innovation of the Year Award for Verenti Bikes, its unique brand of sportive bikes. It was also shortlisted for Non Store Retailer of the Year and Growing Retailer of the Year.

Martin Talbot, Wiggle's director of marketing, said: "We are delighted to have been shortlisted for this award. This is one of the biggest events in the retail calendar and the fact Wiggle is in the final alongside the industry's elite says a lot about our phenomenal growth and hard work in the past year."

Tim Danaher, editor of Retail Week, said: "This year the quality of entries was better than ever so being shortlisted is a great achievement. More than 1500 people from across the UK are expected to join us for this prestigious awards evening which celebrates those leading the way in retail innovation."

The online bike shop is no stranger to awards success: earlier this year Wiggle was shortlisted for two titles at the e-Commerce Awards for Excellence and has won Best Mail Order Company at 220 Triathlon Magazine's awards for the past seven years. It also won BikeBiz's Online Retailer of the Year in 2009 and 2010.
