So, after all the excitement and the activity of our 14 Days of Love
Campaign, the results are finally in and it's been an amazing success.
It was an incredibly tight contest and the final result really could have
swung either way. The fantastic Go Mobile in Heanor and Custom Automotive
in Ripley were neck and neck for much of the last 4 days and the final
hours were nailbiting, as each added vote after vote at almost an equal
rate. Right at the last minute, Go Mobile pulled the all-important 3
reviews out of the bag to clinch the title. The top 5 finished like this:
Most Loved Business in Heanor and Ripley
1st Place - Go Mobile - Heanor
2nd Place - Custom Automotive Styling Sols & VC Motor Repairs -Ripley
3rd Place - Magic and Moonbeams - Heanor
4th Place - Ashmere Care Homes - Heanor, Ripley, Smalley and Codnor
5th Place - Cafe Heroes - Heanor
As well as the Most Loved Business in Town accolade, businesses were also
competing nationally in their own respective categories.
Thebestof network now has around 500 local areas up and down the UK and
businesses from each and every one were eligible for this campaign. That's
why we're really proud to announce that our little area has no less than 7
local businesses achieving a top 5 place in those national categories.
Most Loved MOT Centre in the UK
1st place - Custom Automotive Styling Solutions and VC Motor Repairs -
Most Loved Alternative Therapy Provider in the UK
1st Place - Magic and Moonbeams - Heanor
Most Loved Retirement Home in the UK
2nd Place - Ashmere Care Homes - Heanor, Ripley, Smalley and Codnor
Most Loved Mobile Phone Shop in the UK
2nd Place - GO Mobile - Heanor
Most Loved Arts and Crafts Shop in the UK
4th Place - Muse Gallery and Art Studio - Heage
Most Loved Radio Station in the UK
4th Place - Amber Sound FM - Amber Valley
Most Loved Fancy Dress Shop in the UK
4th Place - The Event Place - Ripley
Our most loved businesses have certainly punched above their weight,
especially when you consider that Heanor and Ripley is one of the smallest
bestof areas in the country. And factor in that the top 3 businesses have
only been in the network since January, and that the results were based on
total reviews collected since 1st March LAST YEAR, this really is an
outstanding achievement. Just think what we can do next year...
Of course, none of this would have happened without YOU and the reviews
you've left for your favourite businesses. However, whilst the 14 days
campaign may be over, we still need you to keep telling us about more great
businesses that we can recommend to others. We want to build this into a
really comprehensive network covering everything you might need, but we
can't do that without your help.
So any time you've had great service or a fab product, tell us about it!
