“Receiving the award two years on the bounce is quite overwhelming,” he said. “2018 has been such a busy year and working with our artistic community is so rewarding that to receive this award is the icing on the cake.
“We do what we do to meet our customers’ needs and often go the extra mile to ensure we satisfy their requirements. It is only with their support that we are able to thrive. A huge thanks must go to them for their support and the vibrant high street of Northwich – it is a gem of a place to have a business in.”
“I think that independent retail is undergoing a fundamental change. No longer will an independent survive without engaging with its customers.
“It is all about developing a true community around a business. That is what we strive to do at Northwich Art Shop.”
“We have a confident and committed band of independent retailers and are seeing new businesses moving in to, or starting up in, Northwich.
“Our high street is a vibrant place with bags of choice, great specialist shops and numerous cafes and bars. These all combine to make Northwich a positive place to do business and as a result we are seeing an increase in new customers visiting the town. This is supported by an ambitious schedule of events and activities provided in partnership by the Northwich Business Improvement District, Northwich Town Council and Cheshire West and Chester Council.”
On the back of receiving another regional award Phil’s attention is now very much on the festive season, and has explained why people should visit Northwich Art Shop if they’re on the lookout for Art & Craft gifts.
“Northwich Art Shop has a wide array of gifts for the artistically minded. We also have gift vouchers for those hard-to-buy-for friends and relatives so make sure you pop in!”
