- Elkjøp Nordic brings home prestigious award as they win Retailer of the Year award at TCG Summit
- A great acknowledgement for our employees says CEO of Elkjøp Nordic, Erik Sønsterud
- It is a great honor to accept this award on behalf of all our colleagues. This is their achievement, said Sønsterud
The TCG Industry Awards are considered one of the most prestigious awards within retail. The awards recognise the most innovative technical consumer brands operating in EMEA. The jury emphasised that Elkjøp Nordic had stood out and excelled with very strong results.
“This award has “team effort” written all over it. It is an acknowledgement of how we have navigated the pandemic and delivered on development and innovation while consolidating our position as the leading omnichannel player in the region”, says Sønsterud.
Since 2020, the TCG Awards have featured the Retailer Award, whose winners are selected by a Grand Jury and judged by top representatives from current TCG summit strategic partners.
“It is always nice to receive recognition from our peers in the industry. It works as a great motivation for us to continue to improve and stay ahead as an industry leader”, Sønsterud continues.
In a year dominated by the pandemic, shutdowns and strong consumer behaviour shifts, the TCG Awards took particular notice of retailers who had adapted in the best possible manner. Sønsterud is humbled by the achievement, outcompeting many strong brands.
“There were some great finalists, so this is truly a great recognition of the amazing performance all our employees have done throughout the pandemic”, concludes Sønsterud.
