The key objective of the 'Month of Trade' event is to improve the level of local trade services; this was its second consecutive year. Organizing the event is the Department of Local Economic Development of the City of Skopje which is seeking to stimulate the retailers to provide even better services, neat and tidy retail outlets, and attractive retail offer. They particularly wish to motivate by presenting awards to the best retailers who were evaluated in 23 categories this year. The category of white goods showrooms included 69 entries. Gorenje ranked second and received the silver prize.
