Recognising excellence

Judged by mystery shoppers this award is designed to recognise excellence in terms of individuality, innovation and an outstanding customer experience.

All areas of the store were scrutinised during the process but in particular the judges were looking for an innovative and exciting product range; excellent merchandising and display; value added services; and evidence of a thorough understanding of their customers’ needs.

Expert staff
