DEBENHAMS in Kidderminster has been named the retail chain’s best small store for the spring-summer season.

The shop beat off competition from more than 150 other Debenhams outlets nationwide and was chosen for its expert presentation of new fashion trends through window and mannequin displays.

Jackie Harvey, the store’s manager, said: “I am thrilled with this achievement.

“It is a true team effort in which every single person has played their part and I am proud to be a part of their success.

“The team always work exceptionally hard and this is fantastic recognition of the team’s capabilities.”

Debenhams Kidderminster, which was also runner-up in the overall best store competition, won a cash prize for a staff party which it held at the Kidderminster Harriers’ Aggborough Suite in May.

Jackie Harvey, as a winning store manager, has been invited to a 5-day trip to Dubai with other finalists in June.
