I haven’t had much time to think this through but I’d like to give a shout out to any local businesses that you think have performed over and above the call of duty during 2019, providing great customer service, amazing products, and consistently wonderful customer experience.
The prize – well, a bit of free publicity from you, the purchasers, as I share your comments on this page.
Plus, if anyone is truly outstanding, receiving numerous nominations, I will offer to donate my time to interview them for a free article in early 2020. In addition, I’m adding in a public service organisation category for any particular place providing a service/info to the public – providing information, office space, expertise, community, etc.
We all know that times are tough in retail, and as more people shop at supermarkets and chains, or even online, it takes a special small retailer to survive the tough economic climate so let’s try to help businesses in Bude.
In the interests of equity and transparency, comments on social media won’t count so please send your nominations via comments to this page – they may be as brief or full as you wish. You may nominate 1 retailer or service provider per category (i.e., up to 10 organisations) or as few as you wish.
- Food outlets (cafes, restaurants, pubs).
- Food outlets (groceries).
