2019 Category Star

Samantha Ackland-Jones, The Village Deli, Storrington

Samantha has made fantastic use of space in her small store to really inspire her shoppers. She seeks out stories from suppliers to give details and inspiration and uses fun messaging in store to encourage purchases. Her displays are imaginative and central to the way the store is run, creating a place you want to stay and browse so it’s hard for shoppers not to want to buy.
