Blakemore Retail Post Office Wins Retail Sales Award

July 19, 2017


Blakemore Retail’s Brumby Corner Post Office has won the Retail Sales Awards’ new category award for Multiple Post Office Retailer of the Year.

The annual Post Office Retail Sales Awards recognise the achievements of Post Office retailers across the franchise and this year brought together 170 of the business’s top performers to celebrate their successes.

Brumby Corner picked up the award at the Retail Sales Awards ceremony on June 10th. Nine other branches were shortlisted for the title and all were visited by judges to determine the final six.

The award, which for the first time recognises retailers whose store includes a Post Office outlet, celebrates retailers who are able to leverage the strengths of both elements to make a success of the overall business.

Brumby Corner is a Mains Post Office comprising a two-position dedicated counter and an open-plan combi-till located at the retail counter.

Post Office Manager Jane Hewson explained the branch’s success: “All staff at the office have an excellent rapport with customers, many of which use the Brumby Corner store rather than ones closer to them because of the service they receive.

“Additionally, our customers now have the convenience of using the Post Office service to fit in with their busy lifestyles given that the combi-till is open outside of traditional Post Office opening times.”

Post Office Controller Stewert Waldron commented: “I’m thrilled that staff at Brumby Corner Post Office have been recognised for their hard work and passion.

"Jane and Store Manager Joan Padley have worked closely together to raise standards and exceed customers’ expectations to provide the best of convenience and Post Office services to satisfy the needs of busy shoppers.”
