Mitchel & Co has been announced as one of a handful of shortlisted finalists in the Retailer of the Year category at the National Association of Jewellers (NAJ) Awards 2022.
The NAJ Awards, supported by Headline Sponsor, Nivoda, champion extraordinary talent within the UK jewellery industry and highlight the retailers, brands and suppliers going above and beyond for the trade and their customers.
Despite receiving countless nominations and facing stiff competition from a broad selection of the jewellery sector, Mitchel & Co impressed the NAJ team and secured a coveted spot on the Retailer of the Year Award shortlist.
The NAJ Awards Ceremony will take place on the evening of June 12, 2022, during the Members’ Gala Dinner at the NAJ Summit 2022.
This four-day event also includes the Valuers’ Conference, hosted by the Institute of Registered Valuers (IRV), the JET Business Network (JBN) Retail Jewellers’ Congress, a Supplier Showcase and a Gemstone Marketplace, among other features. It will take place from June 10-13, 2022, at Staverton Park Hotel in Northampton.
“We’re delighted to be shortlisted for Retailer of the Year. It’s a real testament to our team’s work ethic, especially through the pandemic, where our processes were turned upside down – we all had to band together to make it work. We couldn’t be prouder of everyone!”
Mitchel & Helen Bicknell, Founders, Mitchel & Co
Ben Massey, Principal Officer at the NAJ says: “Our wholehearted congratulations to the entire Mitchel & Co team who thoroughly deserve this place on the NAJ Awards shortlist. We were thrilled with the volume of nominations we received and all those who have secured a place on our shortlist should be very proud indeed. We know you have done incredible things over the last 12 months and have worked hard to counteract the challenges of the pandemic. This is a moment to celebrate all you have achieved!”
The NAJ Awards 2022 feature seven categories, including Retailer of the Year, Designer-Retailer of the Year, Team of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative of the Year, Designer of the Year, Supplier of the Year and Salesperson of the Year.
