Walkers Mica have been recognised by Mica DIY, the National Independent Retailer Group for DIY Home & Garden stores for Excellence in Promotional Displays, collecting the 2015 award at the recent National Conference for the UK group in York.
Brothers Paul & Ian Walker were present to collect the Award, which is handed out to one Independent retailer only each year at the Mica Awards Ceremony following its Annual Gala Dinner, this year held at The Royal Hotel, York.
The store beat off stiff competition from previous winners Ryan’s Mica DIY Centre in New Mills, Derbyshire and Mainlys of Devizes Mica in Wiltshire, alongside Silver winner of the 2015 Hardware Retailer of the Year T Dickey & Co Mica Hardware in Co Fermanagh, Northern Ireland who were also nominated in the category.
Walkers Award was presented by Mica Retail Development Manager Mr. Robin Page, who along with Mica staff judged the entries. Marketing Manager Mr. Michael Ball further commented, “Walkers Mica have a fantastic shop that stands up not just as a local centre of excellence for customer service, product range and product presentation, but on a national level too. This award is well overdue to recognise the hard work Paul, Ian and their team put into the store.”
Said Director Mr. Paul Walker,
“We’re delighted to be recognised by the Mica group for the hard work we put into making our shop look as inviting and attractive as possible to our customers. Our team put a lot of effort into our displays, with Christmas and Halloween being a particular favourite. It’s another feather in our cap in addition to past awards for customer service and product knowledge.”
