Meanwhile, finalists continue to share their thoughts on what it means to be in the running for one of the coveted Excellence in Housewares Awards.
Featuring in both Excellence in Retail Display and Retailer Initiative categories, the team at Dinghams in Salisbury commented: “Dinghams is a small single-store and online family business, and to be a finalist in the prestigious Excellence in Housewares Awards 2022 is wonderful and an indication of the importance of independent retailers in the retail mix.”
At Millys, managing director Neil Allweis enthused: “We are all absolutely thrilled to be nominated for this year’s Excellence in Online Retailing Category. Just being a finalist is recognition of all the hard work put in by the team at Millys.” He reflected: “The last two years have been very challenging for everyone and we are very grateful to be recognised for this award within the industry.”
Among the Excellence in Retailer Initiative finalists, Buy Me Once founder, Tara Button stated: “Buy Me Once exists to champion quality and longevity over throwaway, poorly made products helping people to save money over time and the planet by dramatically reducing waste. To be recognised for our work amongst some truly great brands is incredible.”
