Trio of wins for Lisburn retailers

Three of Lisburn’s independent retailers were recognised with wins at the recent inaugural Northern Ireland Independent Retail Awards 2018. 

Glam Nail & Beauty, owned by Lisa McMahon and trading in Castle Street for 5 years were crowned the ‘Hair & Beauty Salon of the year’ category.  McCall’s, trading since 1956, won ‘Menswear Retailer of the year’ and the well-established Windsor Home Bakery was awarded winner in the ‘Bakery of the year’ category. 

Alderman William Leathem, Chairman of Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council’s Development Committee commended the three businesses on their recent win saying; “I would like to congratulate all three on achieving their success at the Northern Ireland Independent Retail Awards 2018. Lisburn has a long and proud history of family run businesses and like many others they bring a uniqueness to the independent retail offering that local people and those from further afield travel to our city centre to experience. We wish the retailers every success for the future and trust they will continue to build upon their recent accomplishment.”

A spokesperson for the awards said “These awards provided a platform to thank those who work hard to serve the local community and market, whose efforts and achievements often remain overshadowed. We would like to congratulate all finalists and winners for their amazing achievements”.
