Store owner Clare Jackson says she is thrilled with the four awards won by her team and says she is excited by the recognition of her team’s massive effort this year.
“While we are beaming with pride at this success, we need to also thank our customers, because it is their repeat business and loyalty to us that has seen us succeed at this national level.
“Our success at these awards illustrates the value our customers place on the experienced, well-travelled staff we have in-store to ensure our clients’ dream holidays come to life,” says Jackson.
