Margaret Osei-Bonsu, buyer, commented: “We are truly honoured and were shocked to be finalist in this year’s Excellence in Housewares Awards. None of this would be possible without the amazing brands we worth with.

“We continuously strive to think of innovative ways to create the ultimate shopping experience and retail theatre. This is only possible with the incredible suppliers we work with, and the fantastic products launched this year. It is truly a joint effort and we’re extremely proud to even be considered for the award.”

Yossi Gliksman, director of Upstairs Downstairs, finalist in the Independent Cookshop of the Year, said: “We are so excited about this, we have done so much this year to promote the high street and fight the drop in footfall.”

Jason Somers, Divertimenti general manager, commented: “Divertimenti are incredibly grateful to be nominated as an Independent Retailer of the Year and Best Retail Display within the homeware industry. This nomination not only recognizes our hard work and dedication but also highlights the passion we have for providing top-quality cookware and service values to our customers.
