La Cookshop at Blagden in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne has won Charles Viancin’s Large Independent Retailer of the Year Award 2015, for selling the largest volume of Charles Viancin products in 2014.
The La Cookshop team was recently presented with a plaque of achievement, flowers and champagne by Charles Viancin UK ceo Peter Battersby.
La Cookshop co-owner Keith Crowther said: “We saw Charles Viancin at the Spring Fair last year and it rapidly became the best-selling product range we’ve had in the 21 years we have been in business. All our staff really believe in the product and we have a demonstration area dedicated to the brand. My wife Carol is our star performer and it’s incredible how many she can sell each day. Customers return for more and to buy them as gifts for their friends: one lady bought 22 recently. It’s great to be recognised for the amount sold. It just shows what can be done when we get behind a product!”
Charles Viancin recently announced The Kitchen Cupboard of Ledbury as the winner of its Small Independent Retailer Award 2015.
