The Henries Best Service To The Independent Retailer Finalists

Indies voted in droves for the card publishers who excel on the service front to arrive at the finalists for the hotly contested Henries’ Best Service to the Independent Retailer Award 2019.

“Being able to rely on a good service from their suppliers is cited as a top priority for all greeting card independent retailers, an importance reflected in so many indies pledging their votes for this year’s Best Service award,” explained Warren Lomax, joint md of Max Publishing, which owns and organises The Henries greeting card industry awards.

The nomination process involved all independent greeting card retailers to submit their votes for the three card publishers they feel has offered them the top service in the last year.
