Each member of the AIS was invited to cast a vote, based on aspects of business including the professionalism of staff, the quality of displays and the overall shopping experience provided for customers.

“We all constantly work hard to help make the Glasswells shopping experience one to remember and always encourage feedback from our customers; it’s pleasing that this continues to be recognised.”
