Chesterfield Gift Emporium Scoops Second Award

Libby’s retains Home and Gifts Retailer of the Year title

An independent gift retailer has been named Home and Gifts Retailer of the Year for the second year running at the 2016 Chesterfield Retail Awards.

Describing itself as “a shopping emporium within the unique small department store environment,” Libby’s, which is based on Chatsworth Road in Chesterfield, was one of 14 retailers to scoop one of 18 prestigious awards at the sell-out ceremony.

The awards, which are organised by Destination Chesterfield, recognise the very best independent shops, high street stores and market traders in the north east Derbyshire town of Chesterfield.

Delighted winner, and shop owner Libby Morris said: “To win the award a second time is absolutely fantastic. It’s down to the fact that I work with the best team in the world and I’m very, very lucky.

“My philosophy is simple: shopping should be a pleasurable and enjoyable experience. I travel extensively throughout the UK and Europe to source beautiful things, making sure that I meet the suppliers and understand their business ethics and practices. We’re different and our collection isn’t to be found everywhere. My team and I care passionately about our customers and I always buy with them in mind.”

Peter Swallow, Chairman of Destination Chesterfield said: “Once again the retail awards were a huge success and highlighted how strong Chesterfield’s retail scene is.”
