Kentish Express Ashford & District - - RECRUITMENT & BUSINESS -

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.”
