One of the three finalists will be named the region’s winner at the regional TOP SHOP Awards dinner on 14 October.

The Central North Island finalists are:

“Eliza has a mature work ethic beyond her years and acts as a positive role model for the company at all times,” says Mitre10 Mega Hamilton Human Resources Manager Lynne Wilson.
Salvation Army Family Store Manager Karen Lowe: “Kerry is an amazing treasure in our team, very good with customers and staff, excellent regarding health and safety.”
