The Loft were pleased to recently reach the finals of Independent Gift Retailer of the Year 2013 – finalists are nominated by their suppliers.
At an awards ceremony this week there were five finalists who were chosen because they had shown excellence in all areas across the retail spectrum over the last year, including range of gift, product knowledge, customer service, shop environment, marking and display.
The Loft were extremely pleased and honoured to walk home with the trophy for winning Independent Gift Retailer of the Year for London! The trophy will now take pride of place in their window display.
Staff at a In-toto are enjoying a double celebration this month after reaching two impressive milestones.
The In-toto Kitchens Teddington showroom, run by husband and wife team Paul and Louise Wheeler, is now 25 years old after setting up in The Causeway in 1988 and is one of 45 successful In-toto franchises across the country. To prove the quality and experience provided by the Teddington team, celebrations are also underway for kitchen designer Greg Varney, who has recently created his 1,000th kitchen!

Mr Varney, who has been working in the industry for nearly 30 years, is now seeing some customers return to him for a second kitchen design having been so impressed with their first experience of In-toto.
Early methods used to design kitchens used to involved moving pieces around on a magnetic board, but kitchen designs are thankfully all computerised now! The fitting team can also project manage kitchen installations and related building work.
