I am delighted to announce the winner of The Best of Colchester "Retailer of the Year" Award.
Many congratulations to Ambiance of Colchester for polling 37.5% of the vote. Ambiance is a delightful ladies fashions shop situated in the well respected Crouch Street shopping street. The shop is owned by the lovely Wheeler family who, along with their staff, always provide such a warm welcome to their visitors. Ambiance has been going for nearly 25 years which is a great testament to their philosophy of always offering designer collections of the highest quality. They also specialise in mother of the bride, groom and wedding guests.
The Phone Doctor is a great little phone repairs and accessories shop in Osborne Street run by Leon Williamson. Leon and his staff always provide a warm welcome and are renowned for their customer service and ability to repair almost any make of mobile phone. They also carry a large array of mobile phone accessories. I have used The Phone Doctor myself and have always been very satisfied with the service.
Bang & Olufsen is quite simply one of the smartest shops in Colchester. Based on the High Street their store is a temple to all that is best in audio visual entertainment. Julian and Robert have built up a loyal clientele of discerning customers and always make you feel at home when you enter their world. Their audio visual presentation room is one of the best I have ever come across.
Many congratulations to all three businesses.
