A popular young shopkeeper from Suffolk, described as a “great asset” to his community, has narrowly missed out on being crowned Employee of the Year at a prestigious ceremony.
Akash Jamang, who works at his father’s Premier Raj Supermarket in Kings Road, Leiston, came runner-up in the National Federation of Retail Newsagents’ national awards held in London this week.
The 17-year-old Alde Valley Sixth Form student says he was “not fazed” by missing out and thankful for the experience.
“It was a really enjoyable night and a great experience to have at such a young age,” he said. “I was happy to have been runner-up, I’ve still got plenty of my life left ahead of me and I might get nominated again.”
Customers say Akash is a “pleasant, helpful young man”.
