The first two weeks of February saw local people really supporting the 14 Days of Love 2013 campaign run by thebestof Guernsey which seeks to find the ‘Most Loved’ businesses both locally and nationally. Over 2200 new reviews were posted for local businesses on thebestof Guernsey website during the two week long campaign.

AVANT GARDEN has been voted ‘Most Loved Business in Guernsey’ after receiving 300 reviews from happy customers with recommendations including  praise for their 'unique, quality products', 'diverse range', exceptional customer service' and ‘great value'. 

“WOW! Fantastic - that is amazing and really positive.  I am so delighted that our customers have taken the time to give us this recognition,” said Avant Garden owner, Nick Martel when he heard the news.

It’s been an exceptional campaign for Guernsey - nine local businesses have achieved the status of ‘Most Loved’ in their categories in the British Isles, including Avant Garden, Body & Sole, Bonboniera, Boulangerie Victor Hugo, Close Finance, Debbie Duport Dancing, Pro Clean Mobile Valeting, Queen’s Road Medical Practice and Vision Networks.  And 25 businesses have placed in the top five for their categories nationally.

Plus four local businesses also placed in the ‘Top 100 Most Loved Businesses in the British Isles.’

All business reviews posted from 1 March 2012 up until midnight on 14 February 2013 were added to the website’s Love-O-Meter to display the ‘Most Loved’ businesses both locally and nationally:
