GREATS GIFT RETAILER FINALIST 2016!
It's official! Whitehall Garden Centre is one of the best gift retailers in the UK, and has been selected as a finalist in The Greats Gift Retailer Awards 2016.
The Greats Awards, now in their 14th year, were launched by Progressive Gifts & Home magazine to recognise and reward the UK's very best gift retailers across the retail spectrum.
"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 is a fantastic achievement. There was a huge number of entries this year and of an incredibly high standard."
All Greats finalists were decided as a result of an industrywide poll of gift suppliers, reps and agents and validation by a panel of experts.
The winners of this year's prestigious gift retailing Awards - The Greats 2016 - will be revealed at an Awards lunch at The Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London, on Thursday May 5.
The Awards recognise and celebrate not only the top independent and multiple gift retailers regionally and nationally, but also outstanding retail employees.
Whitehall have been announced as a finalist for Best Garden Centre Retailer of Gifts. Last year they took home the trophy and in May they will find out if they have done it again.
