Managing director Seema Goyal has been working at the business her father-in-law and his wife founded back in 1966 for more than 20 years.
On trends in the industry, Seema said: “As a long standing retail business within the Royal Borough, we have chosen to sponsor this award to show our support and celebrate success among our retail peers.”
On the award, president of Maidenhead and District Chamber of Commerce Olu Odeniyi said: “It’s no secret the retail sector has felt under threat for some time,
“Stores are fighting back with their own schemes, such as click and collect, suggestive selling and improving the shopping experience. I therefore watch with great interest to see which national retailers enter this award and stand out from the rest.
