Last week saw the climax of the 14 Days of Love campaign run nationally by 'thebestof' with over 1800 new testimonials being posted on The Best of Guernsey website for your favourite local businesses in two weeks!
Bonboniera is the 'Most Loved Business in Guernsey' after receiving 308 testimonials from satisfied customers on The Best of Guernsey website throughout the year and during the two week campaign.
The recommendations bestowed on Bonboniera included praise for their 'great range of stock', 'good layout', 'fantastic service', 'easy parking', 'competitive prices' and 'quality products' as well as being, 'friendly', 'reliable', 'helpful', and ultimately 'a one stop party shop'.
'WOW! Go Bonboniera.....The team are all made up, thank you to our wonderful customers. We are all off out in a moment so we now have something to celebrate. I am a very happy Bonboniera Balloon Babe,' said owner, Sue Garau, when she heard the news on Thursday night.
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 Bonboniera, Bluchip, Island Adventures, Sarnia Mutual, Pavillion Interiors, Body & Sole, Things To Do Guernsey, Bonsai Group and Vision Networks. And 26 businesses have placed in the top five for their categories nationally.
Plus 4 local businesses also placed in the 'Top 100 Most Loved Businesses in the British Isles.'
All reviews posted from 1 March 2011 up until noon on 15 February 2012 were added to the website's Love-O-Meter which ultimately decided who the 'Most Loved' businesses are, both locally and nationally.
The Best of Guernsey gave away £200 to a lucky Guernsey 'lover'. The winner, picked at random, was JENNY LAINE who provided a testimonial for Debbie Duport Dancing and can use the voucher to spend on any Best of Guernsey business.
