PRESS RELEASE: Garsons has been named the Best Garden Centre for Gifts in the country.
At The Greats Gift Retailer Awards 2019 in London, the family-run business scooped the top award in its category – an accolade which follows hot on the heels of Garsons’ recent special recognition in the national Toy Industry Awards.
“We are thrilled to be given this honour and absolutely delighted to know that our gift range is the best it can be,” said Garsons managing director Ian Richardson. “Gifts are an important part of the shopping experience here at Garsons and The Greats Award reflects the dedication and hard work of our gift buying team who choose our range of beautiful products and select which wonderful suppliers and manufacturers to work with.”
The garden centre’s extensive gift range, which includes items from smaller suppliers not found on the high street alongside top brand names, has been on a winning streak for the past year. To date it has won Best Garden Centre Retailer of Greeting Cards and named the Garden Centre Association’s Best Indoor Lifestyle Retailer.
At the ceremony for The Greats Awards, organiser Sue Marks, editor of Progressive Gifts & Home, said: “Despite the challenges that retail throws at independents and multiples year after year, the best continue to rise to the challenge and it is these ‘greatest of the great’ gift retailers that we were delighted to recognise and reward.”
