Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS - By RHI­AN­NON MCCON­NELL

Take Note Tawa was named store of the year at the Pa­per Plus Group Awards re­cently.

The an­nounce­ment was made at a gala din­ner in Taupo, where more than 400 store own­ers, sup­pli­ers and pub­lish­ers cel­e­brated the store’s suc­cess, as well as the achieve­ments of the Pa­per Plus Group fran­chise.

In ad­di­tion to re­ceiv­ing the Store of the Year award, the books and sta­tionery store also took out the Ex­cel­lence in Cus­tomer Loy­alty award.

Take Note Tawa own­ers Steve and Karen Pet­ti­grew were thrilled to re­ceive the awards.

‘‘We are still buzzing from the fan­tas­tic news,’’ Steve Pet­ti­grew said.

‘‘ This achieve­ment can be at­trib­uted to our en­er­getic and de­voted team, who have worked tire­lessly this year.

‘‘ We also ac­knowl­edge that we couldn’t have achieved this level of na­tional recog­ni­tion with­out the con­stant support of the Tawa com­mu­nity and our loyal cus­tomers.’’

Pa­per Plus Group mar­ket­ing man­ager Lyle Hast­ings said the store was a great ex­am­ple of what Take Note stood for.

‘‘Win­ning this award in the face of such tough com­pe­ti­tion is enor­mously im­pres­sive and needs to be cel­e­brated,’’ Hast­ings said.
