The winners will be announced at a ceremony on May 25, with some of the country's top brands vying for the title of, among others, Which? Supermarket of the Year, Which? Home Appliance Brand of the Year and Which? Trusted Trader of the Year along with Which? Retailer of the Year.

"The Which? Awards celebrate brands that succeed because they put consumers at the heart of their business," commented Which? group chief executive Peter Vicary-Smith.

"For our tenth Which? Awards we are looking to reward businesses that deliver excellent products and services, and those that seek to change things and innovate to consistently deliver more for their customers."

The shortlist is compiled by Which? experts and feedback from Which? members and the general public throughout the year.

Speaking for myself have always found their online service 1st rate and also wondered how they find it economic to offer free delivery for just a 10 order. Local Toolstation staff also friendly & obliging; their prices are sharper too than their Kingfisher rivals.

What a terrible bunch of people, wouldn't touch them with a bargepole. Much better companies to buy from.
