Mansfield Courier - - COURIER | OPINIONS/PEOPLE - By PAM ZIERK-MA­HONEY

IT was a huge sur­prise to Anne Blampied of Mans­field Lead­ing Ap­pli­ances last week when at­tend­ing a Na­tional Con­fer­ence on the Gold Coast for the fran­chise stores where she was an­nounced as win­ner of the ‘Store of the Year’.

Re­turn­ing to Mans­field, Mrs Blampied was still ex­cited over her win say­ing she never dreamt that the Mans­field store would ever take out such a great award.

She ex­plained that they were up against some 60 other Aus­tralia-wide stores within the fran­chise group.

“Well done to the team for all the hard work they have put in to achieve this,” Mrs Blampied said.

“We feel for­tu­nate to be a mem­ber of the re­silient Lead­ing Ap­pli­ances group and are very ex­cited by its fur­ther devel­op­ment and fu­ture di­rec­tion.

“I was ab­so­lutely thrilled to re­ceive the Store of the Year award on be­half of my won­der­ful and ded­i­cated team in Mans­field.”

Lead­ing Ap­pli­ances na­tional group man­ager Ni­cholas Fry also praised Mrs Blampied and her team.

“The Store of the Year is awarded to the Lead­ing Ap­pli­ances store which best rep­re­sents our brand and up­holds the val­ues and stan­dards by which the Lead­ing Ap­pli­ances group of 70+ stores na­tion­wide prides it­self,” Mr Fry said.

“The cri­te­ria in­cludes pro­fes­sional mer­chan­dis­ing, sig­nage and tick­et­ing, strong prod­uct and brand se­lec­tion, in­formed, pro­fes­sional and cour­te­ous staff, ex­cel­lent over­all man­age­ment and be­ing an ac­tive and proac­tive mem­ber of our group.

“Anne Blampied and her team at Mans­field Lead­ing Ap­pli­ances best up­hold these virtues and best rep­re­sent our group, and are a very de­serv­ing win­ner for 2016 of our Store of the Year award.”

“Con­grat­u­la­tions to Mans­field Lead­ing Ap­pli­ances and Tele­coms for tak­ing out the pres­ti­gious Lead­ing Ap­pli­ances “Store of the Year” for 2016 at this year’s Na­tional Con­fer­ence.”
