London, UK-- (21 May, 2015) - It's official! Hallmark Celebrate is one of the best card retailers in the UK, having reached the finals in The Retas 2015 greeting card retailer awards. Celebrate, the online greeting card, gift and party retailer today proudly announced.
“It’s an honour to be a finalist for the great new fresh and exciting product ranges we have added to our store.” New store owner Naomi Green excitedly stated. “Our mantra here at Hallmark Celebrate is to be there for every reason to celebrate. We recognise many multiples and specialist card stores could provide more specialist products for the diverse range of cultures and ethnicities represented in the UK; especially in London. To be recognised for the huge expansion we have made in our products for religious including Muslim, Hindu, Jewish and Christian products as well as our cultural products with our Black, Asian and Eastern European card ranges is a great honour.
The Retas Awards, now in its 11th year, were launched by Progressive Greetings magazine to recognise and reward the UK’s very best greeting card retailers from right across the retail spectrum. Greeting cards are sold in one in six shops in the UK, reaching the finals of The Retas is a notable achievement.
“The sending of greeting cards is an engrained part of UK culture, with the British public spending £1.6 billion on greeting cards in the last year alone,” commented Jakki Brown, editor and co-owner of Progressive Greetings magazine, which organises The Retas Awards.“The nation leads the world in greeting card design and sends more cards per capita (30 cards per person) – and The Retas Awards celebrate the very finest greeting card retail stockists in the UK.”
All Retas finalists were decided as a result of an industry wide poll of greeting card suppliers, reps and agents and validated by a panel of experts.
The winners of this year’s prestigious greeting card retailing awards - The Retas 2015 – will be revealed at an Awards lunch at the glamorous Dorchester Hotel on London on Wednesday July 8.
The Awards recognise and celebrate not only the top independent and multiple greeting card retailers regionally and nationally, but also outstanding retail employees.
These dedicated awards for retailers have risen immeasurably in status over the last decade and are now universally acknowledged as being true accolades of excellence.
