Best Independent High Street Business - Love Chesterfield 2021
On 20th October 2021, Fred's Haberdashery won the "Best Independent High Street Business" award from Love Chesterfield (Destination Chesterfield. The Love Chesterfield awards celebrate the town’s favourite food and drink and retail businesses, entrepreneurs, regeneration, contribution to the local community, apprenticeships and sustainability.
The award ceremony was held at the Winding Wheel in Chesterfied and hosted by BBC TV presenter, Mike Bushell.
This is the 2nd year on the trot that the team at Fred's have taken this award and was all the more surprising because of that. This year we were up against two other fantastic independents Bee Orchid Home & Gifts and One Nine Three Hair Beauty.
After winning the award, owner/manager Emily Lord said "It was fantastic to win again and was a big surprise. We're doing what Fred's has always done - providing a great range of products and great prices. There's not many haberdasheries left in the country and we're quite unique locally. We can sell you just one button, or even a 1/4 of a metre of ribbon or elastic, if that's all that you need. We're also adding to our range of products and have brought Fred's into the 21st century with the online order platform (website) and social media too! Thanks to our customers for continuing to use us and long may that continue".
