I’m so excited that the day is nearly here (no, not the general election!) the day that we head to the Savoy Hotel for the Great Gift Retailer Awards 2015! Inside Out were picked as a finalist in the Independent Gift Retailer of the Year – South West Category and we haven’t stopped smiling since. All of the finalists are invited to a glamorous awards lunch at the Savoy hotel in London where the winners of this years’ Progressive Gifts and Home Greats Awards will be revealed. I love a good excuse to buy a new party frock and drink Champaign.
I actually met some fellow finalists a few weeks ago when I was invited to an Independent Retailers networking lunch at Renaissance Hotel, St Pancras in London to discuss the challenges and opportunities we all encounter as independent retailers. We all work so hard to make our businesses succeed so I want to wish them the best of luck as well!
