Glasswells has been named by the National Bed Federation (NBF) as winner of the Large NBF Retail Champion of the Year and Outstanding Bed Store of the Year categories, described by judges as "one the finest furniture retailers, not just in the UK but maybe all of Europe".
The NBF is the voice of the UK bed industry and the trade association for British and Irish bed manufacturers. Scooping two of the six NBF retailer awards, Glasswells has been recognised as a trusted and sustainable retailer, which provides top-quality beds and mattresses which are long-lasting, reliable and manufactured honestly.
“From exceptional kerb appeal and immaculate presentation of products to merchandising and excellent product knowledge, Glasswells’ flagship shone as a store that truly knows its products, its customers and what is required to support staff to deliver the best possible service,” the judges continued.
MD Paul Glasswell comments: “We are thrilled that Glasswells has won not only the Large NBF Retail Champion of the Year, but also the Outstanding Bed Store of the Year in the NBF Bed Industry Awards.
“My grandfather started the business in 1946, and we have always strived to be the best home furnisher – from creating immaculate shopping environments, to working closely with specially selected suppliers and investing in our people to offer the expert advice we are renowned for.
“Whilst all of the team at Glasswells has played their part in achieving these awards, special thanks must go to Julie Valentine, our bed buyer, who has put tremendous effort into making Glasswells the Outstanding Bed Store of the Year.”
