Second Time Award Winners For Retailer Of The Year Suit’s Us!

Posted on by admin

Here at Fogarty Formal Hire, we're very pleased to announce that we have won the award for Retailer Of The Year at the Federation of Small Business Awards for the second year running! As mentioned in our previous post, we were selected as finalists and invited to attend the awards ceremony, held at the Luton Hoo, in early June. The entire Fogarty team along with family and friends turned out for the ceremony, which was hosted by radio presenter Stephen Rhodes, most famous for the Stephen Rhodes Consumer Programme on BBC Three Counties Radio. For once the sun came out for us, and we were able to enjoy drinks outside, against the backdrop of the stunning Luton Hoo Gardens. The evening featured a delicious three course meal and music, but the highlight for us was gaining the award, an honour we really didn't expect having won just last year. And we weren't the only ones from Leighton Buzzard to be victorious. A local solicitors scooped Overall County Winner and two other small businesses won too. Damian Cummins, branch chairman of the FSB in the area was quoted saying; “Leighton Buzzard featured strongly this year and there were many well deserved winners from across Bedfordshire. SMEs are saving our economy and it is only right to celebrate local talent across the county.” The award is the icing on the cake for progressive twelve months for Fogarty Formal Hire, having moved to a larger premises in November last year and employed two new members of staff in response to the shop's growing popularity. It has boosted morale amongst our staff, and we hope to continue with our growth and progression well into the future. If you're out and about in Leighton Buzzard, why not pop in and say hello? We specialise in black tie hire across Aylesbury, Milton Keynes, Bedford and the surrounding areas, so next time you need to get suited and booted, come to the local award winners.
