And the Academy Award goes to...

Yes, it’s true; we are closed for a long winter’s nap! But last Sunday we all stumbled out of the farmyard, dressed in our best, and set-out to a gala event at the Congress Centre in Toronto.

We are thrilled to announce we are the recipient of the 2012 Retailer of Distinction Award!

Every year the Canadian Gift and Tableware Association recognizes leading retailers in the Canadian giftware industry. Springridge Farm was awarded for our outstanding achievements including excellent merchandising, innovative marketing campaigns and top customer service.

This nation-wide award is assessed by a panel of expert judges whose criteria is vital to success in the retail industry: visual merchandising and store design, business achievements, advertising and public relations, community involvement, innovation and originality followed by a visit from a secret shopper.

The evening started with a cocktail reception, followed by a formal dinner in a ballroom with more than 500 guests. Farmer John, Famer Laura, Farmer Amy, Farmer Tom, Jesse, Niki, Ginny and Susan represented Springridge. After the awards were handed out for Sales Rep and Supplier of the Year, Farmer John and Farmer Laura were escorted on stage to receive the Retailer of Distinction crystal statue! After dessert, the party revved up with a Bee Gees tribute band and we all hit the dance floor to celebrate.

And we’re looking forward to celebrating with YOU! Save the date: our opening day is March 28, 2013. In the meantime, you can follow all the winter updates from our Jam Team on Facebook and Twitter.
