British Garden Centres Makes It Into Prestigious Nationwide Greeting Card Retailing Awards Finals

By Ian Hutchinson

It's official! British Garden Centres is one of the best card retailers in the UK, having reached the finals in The Retas 2016 greeting card retailer awards.

The Retas Awards, now in its 12th year, were launched by Progressive Greetings magazine to recognise and reward the UK’s very best greeting card retailers from right across the retail spectrum. Greeting cards are sold in one in six shops in the UK, reaching the finals of The Retas is a notable achievement.

“The sending of greeting cards is an engrained part of UK culture, with the British public spending £1.6 billion on greeting cards in the last year alone,” commented Jakki Brown, editor and co-owner of Progressive Greetings magazine, which organises The Retas Awards. “The nation leads the world in greeting card design and sends more cards per capita (30 cards per person) – and The Retas Awards celebrate the very finest greeting card retail stockists in the UK.”

All Retas finalists were decided as a result of an industrywide poll of greeting card suppliers, reps and agents and validated by a panel of experts.

The winners of this year’s prestigious greeting card retailing awards - The Retas 2016 – will be revealed at an Awards lunch at the glamorous Dorchester Hotel on London on Wednesday July 13.

The Awards recognise and celebrate not only the top independent and multiple greeting card retailers regionally and nationally, but also outstanding retail employees.
These dedicated awards for retailers have risen immeasurably in status over the last decade and are now universally acknowledged as being true accolades of excellence.
