Last night some of The Dressing Room team hot footed it over the the Alban Arena after work to attend the St Albans Retailer of the Year awards! And what a night it was!
The team had a great night, chatting with other St Albans Local retailers and singing along (albeit tongue in cheek) to the fabulous Elvis Shmelvis!
The awards got underway and we were thrilled to be awarded the best Fashion & Accessories Award! The award was presented by Council officer Maria Cutler.
When asked by the St Albans Review why she thought they had won, Deryane said she put it down to ‘Passion, Hard work and constant Innovation.’
Deryane said ‘I am very proud to win a local award like this as I think it is so important that we champion and support local, Independent Businesses. Independent retailers are what make St Albans such a special and unique place to shop, we offer unparalleled customer service alongside a product mix picked with our specific target market in mind. You simply cannot get this level of detail and shopping experience from a multiple retailer and we need to celebrate that!’
Other winners on the night were: Baked Nation in Victoria Street for best Food & Drink, The Cheesewheeler for the Market Traders Category, Greys Hairdressing in Christopher Place for Best Hair & Beauty and overall Retailer of the year, Empire Records in Heritage close for the Star Award, Verdi’s Trattoria for Cafe’s & Restaurants.
Retailers are nominated into their categories, and then each retailer is mystery shopped to achieve the final result. So thankyou to our lovely customers that supported us and voted us into the category in the first place! xx
