APRIL 18, 2008
Last week the winners of the World Retail Finalist 2008 awards, designed to recognise the most successful retailers of the last year, were announced during a gala dinner ceremony, hosted in Barcelona’s prestigious Palau Nacional.
PhotoBox was short-listed in the E-tailer of the Year category, but unfortunately we lost out to a rather well-known rival, Tesco.
‘Every little helps’ as they are so fond of saying and it obviously did when it came to judging the winner.
Still, it was good news to be short-listed for such a high profile award alongside just five other companies, including big names such as Argos and Littlewoods, even if it would have been great to win another award to add to our collection. With our new site due to launch shortly though, we might have better luck next year.
To keep you posted, further progress has been made on the new site and we’re now into the fine-tuning and testing phase. So those of you who expressed an interest in being the first to see the new site will be notified shortly.
Finally, thank you to everyone who filled in our recent survey on Swarowski PhotoBooks. Due to the positive feedback we received regarding this product, we will be launching a special-edition Swarowski crystal encrusted PhotoBook later in the year.
I look forward to hearing more of your comments.
