Glasswells, Fishpools and Ward Brothers share AIS honours
AIS suppliers have selected their top retailers of 2017.
The AIS Member of the Year award for the larger turnover group of retailers was again divided into single store and multiple store retailers. The multiple store winner was Glasswells, in its 70th anniversary year, with Alan Ward second place and Sterling Furniture third.
In the single store category Fishpools was the winner, with Roomes second and Housing Units third.
In the smaller turnover group, Doncaster retailer Ward Brothers was revealed as the winner in its first year as an AIS member, ahead of Eyres of Chesterfield in second and Beadle Crome Interiors third.
The member of the year award is extremely important to many AIS members as it is recognition from suppliers of the way in which they merchandise their stores and the manner in which they conduct their retail operations.
