Arboretum Gift Shop Recognised by 'The Greats'

16 May 2019

We are delighted to announce that the Arboretum Gift Shop has won the award for Best Museum Or Visitor Attraction Gift Shop at the 2019 The Greats Gift Retailer Awards last night (Wednesday 15 May).

The Greats Awards recognise and celebrate the top independent and multiple gift retailers, as well as outstanding retail employees. This year’s theme was ‘Take a Walk on The Wild Side’, hosted and catered at the Grosvenor House, compered by comedian Henry Parker and organised by leading giftware trade magazine Progressive Gifts & Home.

“We try to offer a great experience to all of our visitors and this includes those who wish to take away a memento of their visit. Our retail team, led by Mark Alexander, work very hard to maintain the highest possible standards in our eye-catching shop. It is always nice to be recognised for our efforts and we are very proud to have been recognised in this way against some very high quality competition from many nationally recognised museums and visitor attractions.” Mark Ellis, Head of Visitor Experience

This category, sponsored by Heritage Arts, saw the Arboretum up against Blenheim Palace, The Imperial War Museum, Sledmere House, The Royal Opera House and The V&A London.
