The winners of this year’s greeting card retailing awards - affectionately known as The Retas - were revealed recently at a glittering awards event at London’s Dorchester Hotel, attended by almost 400 people.
The Retas awards, launched in 2005 by Progressive Greetings Worldwide magazine, recognise excellence across the whole greeting cards retailing spectrum, from independents on the high streets, to the mini chains, national multiples, garden centres, department stores, supermarkets as well as art and framing shops.
FIRST CLASS GREETINGS beat off the competition to win the BEST INDEPENDENT GREETING CARD RETAILER EAST ANGLIA award.
All the winners in all the retail categories were arrived at as a result of huge nationwide nomination process. Earlier this year, over 2,000 Retas forms were distributed to UK greeting card publishers, who nominated the retailers that they felt to be the worthy winners in each of the categories.
The winner of the Best Retail Employee Of The Year category was arrived at by retailers nominating the members of their own staff that they felt were outstanding and had gone beyond the call of duty.
THE AWARDS CEREMONY
All winners were revealed at a glittering Awards event, which was held at The Dorchester Hotel in London on Wednesday 9 July.
The event, which took on a Vintage Travel theme, was hosted by celebrity and comedian Rob Deering.
