Broadmead travel shop recognised for awards
The Bakers Dolphin travel shop in The Arcade, Broadmead, Bristol has been shortlisted for a Retailer Award by the Broadmead BID Project.
The shop, which specialises in UK coach tours, international air and cruise holidays and London theatre trips, has been shortlisted in the Service Provider category following a mystery shopping visit.
The winners will be announced at a special ceremony on Tuesday 25 April at Brasserie Blanc in Quakers Friars and the Lord Mayor will be there to present awards.
This is the second Retailer Awards organised by Broadmead BID and has seen over 100 shops in the area entered into a mystery shopping programme, with those that perform the best shortlisted.
Bakers Dolphin Sales and Marketing Director, Amanda Harrington, said: “We are delighted to have been shortlisted for this wonderful award and we’re really looking forward to attending the ceremony along with our neighbouring shops.
“A lot of our customers have turned to online methods to book their holidays in recent years but we believe that having a place people can go and talk to an experienced travel adviser face-to-face is still very important. It gives some customers peace of mind to browse and talk through their options and we also run regular shop-exclusive discounts.
“The team we have there – Tina, Jo, Fiona and Nicki – are all highly experienced advisors and each have their own specialist areas, from cruises to city breaks. Because we are independent we can offer a wider range than most travel agents.
“We’re committed to the regeneration of Broadmead and these awards highlight just some of the top businesses operating in the area.”
The Baker Dolphin Broadmead shop is open Monday to Friday (9.30 am to 5.30pm) and on Saturdays (9.30 am to 5pm). Telephone: 01179 60 7000.
