“We’re a very proud Bristol business and winning this category is a great achievement. We’d like to say a very big thank you to all our customers that have supported us over the years and continue to do so. There’s no doubt that Bristol is a thriving business community as well as a brilliant shopping destination and these awards are a great way to celebrate this.”
