Multi-store retailer Allum & Sidaway was crowned the winner of two awards at the South Wilts Business of the Year Awards.

Allum & Sidaway scooped a regional awards Retailer of the Year and Excellence in Customer Service categories in the South Wilts Business of the Year Awards, held in Salisbury on 22 June.

The Awards, now in their eighteenth year, are recognised by hundreds of local companies and this year saw nearly 150 companies enter.


All entrants were visited by a panel of expert judges, with the customer service award having the additional qualifier of nominations from local shoppers, before the 13 winners were selected.

Managing director Jason Allum said the evening was extraordinary. He said: “It was a huge honour for us to win these two awards, one of which was voted for by our customers. We are celebrating our 75th anniversary this year and last year we moved across the square in Salisbury city centre to a beautiful listed building in which we feel we have created something very special.

“This was a dream of ours and these awards are a welcome recognition of what we have created. We wholeheartedly thank everyone that voted for us. However, without the drive, energy and commitment of all our wonderful staff, Allum & Sidaway would not be the successful business it is today. I also congratulate all the other winners and fellow nominees.”
