Home and gift store is a smash
ASHFORD home and gift store China Place is in line for a national award after being nominated as one of the top four retailers of its kind in the country.
As the only independent retailer at Ashford Designer Outlet, they have doubled in size since opening in 2001.
The store is now in line for a Greats award, the retail version of an Oscar.
The family-owned business has been nominated by suppliers as one of the best four china and glass retailers in the country.
Manager Daryl Carter is hoping to leave the sparkling awards ceremony at London’s Royal Lancaster Hotel on May 10 with the top prize in his grasp.
He said: “It is fantastic to have China Place recognised. It’s a tribute to the staff and the support of our customers. I am looking forward to a great evening and, hopefully, to doing well.”
