The Greats Awards, now in their 13th year, were launched by Progressive Gifts & Home magazine, to recognise and reward the UK’s very best gift retailers, in specific categories, across the retail spectrum. All retail finalists were decided as a result of an industry wide poll of gift suppliers, reps and agents and validation by a panel of experts.
“These dedicated awards for gift retailers have risen immeasurably in status over the years and are now universally acknowledged as being true accolades of excellence,” commented Sue Marks, editor of Progressive Gifts & Home. “Being selected as a finalist was a fantastic achievement. There was a huge entry this year, with some outstanding, first class entries.” For more info visit www.thegreatsawards.co.uk
