More ‘Greats’ Responses From Greats Winners

“Over the moon” and “overwhelmed” are just some of the many heartfelt comments received by GiftsandHome.net as Greats winners continue to share their excitement in being recognised and rewarded at last week’s Greats Gift Retailer Awards 2019 which were held at London’s glittering Grosvenor House.

“We were very thrilled that John Lewis & Partners was called out as the winner for Best Department Store retailer of Gifts,” enthused Rosy Bick, partner and assistant gift buyer at John Lewis & Partners.“Over the past year, we have worked very hard to transform our gifting offer, and we were very glad to see that it is paying off.”
