A GREETING card retailer from Burnham has been given a stamp of approval, with the business reaching the final of a prestigious national competition.

Sentiments, based in Burnham High Street, has been shortlisted as one of the best greeting card retailers in the South West for this year’s Retas, the industry’s only national awards event.

Lauren Keen, the shop manager, has also been nominated in the category of employee of the year. It is the second time in two years both have reached the finals of the awards.

The shop has been owned by John and Karen Lyons since April 2012. Since taking over the couple have brought in a number of niche gifts and card choices.

Mr Lyons said: “I am absolutely thrilled for us to reach the finals for the second straight year, and this reflects the tremendous effort and hard work put in by the whole team in that period.”
