Walton scoops top Merseyside prize
North-west of England chain Walton Flooring Centre has been awarded a top regional prize.
The five store chain was named as retailer of the year at the Merseyside Independent Business Awards.
The company was founded in Walton, Liverpool in 2011 and now has stores around Liverpool, Southport and on the Wirral.
‘We are absolutely delighted to receive this award, all of our hard work and determination has now been recognised externally. I am so proud to be able to share this award with all of our staff, suppliers and customers,’ said James Harper, WFC md.
Harper has plans to open another seven branches in the next 18 months.
‘Our growth comes from our reputation in each of the local areas in which we are based. The majority of our customers return to us, bringing friends and family with them. We have grown as a company under our own steam, without any external funding or investment. We aim to stay independent, offering a standard of service that is better than the bigger brands on the high street,’ added Harper, who was shortlisted for the Business Person of the Year award.
