business award

Enderby-based Palmers Garden Centres picked up two top prizes at the Family Business Awards, hosted by Family Business United.

It was announced as winner of the Midlands & Central Family Business of the Year in the People’s Choice Awards, voted on by the public, as well as winners of the National People’s Choice Champions 2020 award.

Caroline Palmer, managing director of Palmers Garden Centres, says: “We’re absolutely delighted to have won these awards.  We take the meaning of the word ‘family’ very broadly at Palmers Garden Centres and include not only members of the founding family but also all our staff, suppliers and customers.  We’re immensely proud to be a fourth-generation family business and are looking forward to working together to ensure that our business is here for a very long time.

“To win any award is very special but to win two People’s Choice awards which are voted for by the public is incredibly special and I’d like to thank everyone who took the time and trouble to vote for us.”

A spokesperson from Family Business United says: “2020 has been a tricky year but the show must go on!  Huge congratulations to Palmers Garden Centres. To have won not one but two awards at their first attempt is just amazing and demonstrates the high esteem in which they’re held!”
