RETAS award winners 2019

BGC Wholesale win at RETAS Awards 2019

BGC Wholesale are thrilled to be named winners of the Best Greeting Card Service Based Wholesaler award at The RETAS Awards 2019!

The winners of this year’s greeting card retailing awards – also known as The RETAS – were revealed on the 10th of July at an awards event at The Grosvenor House Hotel in Mayfair, attended by over 400 people. The event, which took on a ‘Frida Fiesta’ theme (after the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo), was hosted by comedian Pippa Evans.

The RETAS awards, launched in 2005 by Progressive Greetings Worldwide magazine, recognise excellence across the whole greeting cards retailing spectrum, from independents on the high streets, to the mini chains, national multiples, garden centres, department stores, supermarkets as well as art and framing shops.

The Best Greeting Card Service Based Wholesaler award is a landmark recognition of our huge contributions to the greeting cards industry. The decision was arrived at by popular demand; earlier this year, over 2,000 RETAS forms were distributed to UK greeting card publishers, who nominated the retailers that they felt to be the worthy winners in each of the categories.

BGC are honoured by the support they have received from the greeting card publishers across the UK, and pledge to continue in delivering a world-class service for their customers.
