Relive The Retas 2017 greeting card retailing awards

As The Retas retailer winners continue to shout about their triumphs in the press, on social media and in their stores, everyone can now relive the memorable afternoon at The Dorchester (on July 12) at which The Retas award winners were revealed.

A short video has been specially created by Max Live Events, the sister company to Max Publishing, which owns and organises The Retas, that captures the flavour of the lovely afternoon.

Among the retailers who are still basking in the glory of their success is the team at The Guisborough Bookshop that won Best Independent Bookshop Retailer of Greeting Cards in The Retas 2017.

“We were honoured and very proud to be nominated, let alone to WIN. We couldn’t have done it without the support and friendships of our publishers and their loyal staff. It just proves that anyone can win, so roll on The Retas 2018. Woohoo,” commented Lloyd and Kirsty Brooks, co-owners of The Guisborough Bookshop (pictured with their team and Retas trophy outside the shop).
