Chesterfield independent jeweller Adorn Jewellers has won two awards in the 2015 Retail Awards organised by Destination Chesterfield in association with Learning Unlimited.
Adorn Jewellers was named Jewellery and Accessories Retailer of the Year and also won the award for Excellence in Customer Service at the annual awards ceremony.
This year Adorn’s owners, husband and wife team Laura-Jo and Adam Owens, are celebrating five years in business.
Laura-Jo Owens says: “We are absolutely over the moon to win two Retail Awards. It really means the world that our customers voted for and nominated us. It’s our fifth year in business this year and this is just the icing on the cake.”
Adorn is passionate about unusual jewellery and works with small independent designers and larger family owned businesses to find unique pieces.
Adorn was one of 13 winners of a total of 16 awards recognising the very best independent shops, high street stores and market traders in the north east Derbyshire town of Chesterfield. This year’s awards received more than 600 nominations for businesses from the public and the winners were selected from 36 finalists, competing for the title of the very best in their respective categories.
Vice chair of Destination Chesterfield, and cabinet member for the Town Centre and Visitor Economy, Amanda Serjeant, says: “Across Chesterfield we are privileged to have a great range of independent stores in the Shambles and the Yards in the Town Centre, along Chatsworth Road and Whittington Moor as well as our market and popular high street stores. It is this mix of retailers that makes our town so popular and keeps shoppers, both locally and further afield, coming back for more.
“Chesterfield is envied nationally for its retail success. While other town and city centres are struggling, ours is thriving and it’s no wonder seeing the passion, innovation and customer service so many of the town’s retailers are delivering on a daily basis. The Retail Awards recognised and celebrated the efforts and success of retailers across the town.”
