|Best traders announced
David Hobson of Hobson’s Roofcare, Stephen Lyth of Atherton Tiling Solutions and Brian King of Brian King Flooring.
The best three ‘Good Traders’ across Wigan Borough have been announced.
The top 40 businesses signed up to Wigan Council’s ‘Good Trader’ scheme (ran by the trading standards team) attended the annual awards ceremony on Thursday 21st March where they were each presented with an award for excellence in customer service.
Three of those companies went on to win special prizes, with Hobson's Roofcare winning the best ‘Good Trader of the year Wigan,’ Atherton Tiling Solutions named ‘Good Trader of the year Leigh’ and Brian King Flooring taking the ‘Best newcomer’ title.
Winners were judged on the quality and volume of customer feedback they had generated in the last 12 months and on their contribution to providing a high quality service.
Good Trader of the Year Wigan winner, David Hobson, said: “The scheme gives customers peace of mind; knowing that every business enrolled is accountable to Wigan Trading Standards and has committed to dealing fairly and honestly with their customers.
“Since joining the scheme in 2008, we’ve generated a lot of custom – allowing our business to grow.”
Deputy leader of Wigan Council, Cllr David Molyneux, said:
“These awards are a fantastic way of supporting our local businesses through recognising and rewarding those who demonstrate exemplary workmanship and excellent customer service.
“I’d like to thank and congratulate all those involved for setting such a high benchmark for best practice in Wigan Borough.”
