The Country House Gift Company has been awarded Runner Up in the highly acclaimed RETAS Awards at a ceremony at The Dorchester, London, in the category of Best Non-Specialist Independent Retailer of Greeting Cards – South. The RETAS awards recognise and celebrate the top independent and multiple greeting card retailers regionally and nationally.
Elaine is delighted: “We have worked really hard in our first year to offer our customers lovely gifts together with exceptional customer service. To be a runner up at a national level is amazing, beyond our expectations but thoroughly deserved by my hard working team.”
This award is the second national award that The Country House Gift Company has won this year. Earlier in the spring they picked up A Great Award in The Greats Gift Retail Awards 2015, winning in the category of Best Newcomer. They saw off considerable competition from across the South and Wales.
The Country House Gift Company favour British and Somerset made gifts, seeking out local designers and craftspeople making gifts that are a little different and all the more special. They have even produced their own range of cards by working with local artists and photographers.
