Britain's Best Small Shop
What an amazing birthday present! At an awards ceremony in the Houses of Parliament last Tues, 13th Nov, Mainstreet was named as Britain’s Best Small Shop 2018 from a shortlist of 25 businesses (and 600 entries). The Best Small Shops competition, managed by the Independent Retailers Confederation (IRC), celebrates the commitment and creativity of independent retailers on the UK’s High Streets and the central role they play in their local communities.
The award has been a wonderful boost for our very hard-working team in our 10th birthday year, timed perfectly in the run up to Christmas.
Here’s a quick round up of some of the fantastic publicity that has brought in new customers from near and far. News reports in The Times, The Daily Mail, the ‘I’, The Herald & The Sun, feature on ITV Borders 6pm news plus radio news bulletins on BBC R4, BBC R2, BBC 6Music, BBC Scotland (clip below) & Borders Radio.
Plus, a lovely customer wrote this beautiful blog about us.
We’d like to say a BIG thank you to all our staff and customers!
