The Henries 2020 Best Service To The Independent Retailer Finalists 

Independent retailers have voted in droves for the card publishers who have excelled on the service front over the last year to arrive at the finalists for the hotly contested Henries’ Best Service to the Independent Retailer Award 2020.

“So much has been put to the test over the last year – and being able to rely on a good service from their suppliers has been a top priority for all greeting card independent retailers both pre-lockdown, during and now,” explained Warren Lomax, joint md of Max Publishing, which owns and organises The Henries greeting card industry awards. “We were inundated with indies pledging their votes for this year’s Best Service award contenders, ever grateful of the lengths some publishers have gone to over the last 12 months.”

The nomination process, involving 2,500 independent greeting card retailers, asked for them to submit their votes for the three card publishers they feel have offered them the best service.
