Success at National Award Final – BEST SPECIALISED RETAILER IN SCOTLAND!!!

Recently, we were nominated for two categories at the Lanarkshire Business Awards that place on the 10th of March at the Radstone Hotel, Strathaven and were delighted to win both Best Specialised Retailer for South Lanarkshire and Best Gift Shop in Lanarkshire 2019.
Every regional winner is then entered into the Grand Final of Scotlands Business Awards which was held on the 26th of May at the Glasgow Marriot Hotel.
With a total of 500 people attending the event and over 14 regions all in competition to take home the prizes showcasing the best businesses in Scotland.
Despite being in one if the largest categories at the event, we were delighted to be crowned the Best Specialised Retailer in Scotland for 2019!
This was a fantastic achievement for us all and were over the moon to receive this award.
In a recent interview with some local press, Ken the owner of the business said,
“As a small business and an independent retailer, our small team work very hard to provide a level of service to our customers that is not only very personal, but is better than that of the big multiples and online internet providers. We have worked very hard in ensuring McKellars is an asset to Lanark High Street and we try to help, support and contribute to the wider community wherever possible. We are fully aware that it is the local people of Lanark & the surrounding areas that keep our business alive. Without them and their support we would not have a business. This award, which is customer review driven, is an endorsement of the efforts that we make and the level of appreciation that Lanark has shown to us. We are very grateful to all our customers for this. It is a pleasure and a privilege to serve the people of Lanark and the surrounding towns. McKellars as a business has been doing this since 1904 and we hope that with the continued support of the town we will still be providing this service in another 115 years time.”
