Local retailer, Starlings, has been nominated for The Greats Gift Retail Awards 2020. The Greats awards, celebrating their 18th year in 2020, recognise top independent retailers all over the country. Starlings are shortlisted in the ‘Independent Gift Retailer of the Year – Scotland’ alongside five other independent retailers from across Scotland.
Starlings owner, Aly MacPhail said “I was so surprised & delighted to receive such lovely news particularly in these unprecedented scary times in business. Tom & I must pay tribute to our amazing staff & loyal customers at Starlings. However, I’m still not quite sure how or who nominated us for the Scottish Independent retailer award but it’s certainly a ray of happiness that we are proud of at such a troubled time for everyone. We now look forward to Starlings & Kirkwall High Street being back to its usual bustling self as soon as it’s safely possible”
At a time of great uncertainty for local businesses it is great to share a positive story. We wish Starlings the best of luck for the award ceremony in September.
