A long-standing, family business in Richmond has won an award for outstanding customer service.
Furniture store Oliviers, which has been trading in Richmond since 1958, picked up the award for Outstanding Customer Service at the recently held Teesdale Business Awards 2011.
Partner, Paul Olivier, who was accompanied by Gina Russell and Julie Forest to the awards ceremony, said: “We are delighted to have won this award, we are a family business and we’ve always made it a priority to give a good service to our customers, so it’s great to be recognised for something that has always been part of our company ethos.”
The Teesdale Business Awards, which have recently been set up to recognise success and celebrate the achievements of local firms and people, received 400 nominations for 50 companies across 8 categories for the 2011 awards.
Oliviers have two furniture stores in the area, one on Gallowfields Trading Estate in Richmond and one in Barnard Castle, both selling a large range of furniture and soft furnishings. They also have a very popular second hand department in their Richmond store.
