Susan’s Retas Nomination 2017
Susan Robertson is our Card and Gift Wrap Supervisor. She dedicates a lot of time and effort into the card department at The Mains of Drum, so much so, that one of her company representatives nominated Susan for the “Greeting Card Retail Employee of the Year”. This qualified The Mains of Drum in the category of “Best Garden Centre Retailer of Greeting Cards” in the Retas Awards 2017.
It is very exciting news to announce that Susan and her department have reached the finals in both of these categories! The Retas is a large summer event for the greeting card community, bringing together the industry for a celebratory afternoon with a grand lunch at the Dorchester Hotel in London.
Susan says “I am thrilled, excited and proud to be a finalist”… “It kept me quiet for about 5 minutes… I was almost lost for words!”
People who know Susan will know that she is not often lost for words(!) but she truly deserves to be recognised for her dedication and enthusiasm for her department within the greeting card industry.
Susan has worked at The Mains of Drum for 7 years as of the May holiday 2017 and has proved invaluable since taking on the role of Greeting Cards and Wrap Supervisor. She continues to provide fantastic customer service and exemplary standards within her department and around the store.
We wish Susan the best of luck when the winner is announced at the event in July!
