Alibaba and Walmart were jointly named Retailer of the Year at the World Retail Awards, which were held virtually last week.

Additionally, while Adidas London won the award from Outstanding Store Design for sites over 1200sqm, a collaboration between Singtel and Fitch took the under 1200sqm award.

“I’m delighted to have won this award and have this work recognised on the global stage,” said Johnathan Cummings, Landor & Fitch Greater China president. 

“Our team rose to the challenge and formed a formidable combination with the Singtel team to deliver something that has delivered amazing results. I hope that it inspires the industry, brands and agencies alike, to continue pushing boundaries and further shape the future of retail.”

Fashion brand Reiss took home the Retail Transformation and Reinvention award, while Best Customer Experience Initiative went to Bonprix for its ‘fashion connect’ store.

JD won the Sustainable Retailing Initiative award for its Green Stream initiative – the first time the awards have lauded companies for acting environmentally responsibly. 

Circular economy app Stuffstr was named the Retail Technology Game-Changer, while Australia’s Supercheap Auto took home the Best Integrated Marketing Campaign award.
