Craig & Cheryl Snape of Snapes & Sons Home Hardware are celebrating having been announced as winners of 'Home Hardware Retailer of the Year' at Home Hardware's Convention on Saturday 16 November 2019.

In choosing a winner, Home Hardware took into account the professional approach to retailing including promotions, store layout, staff training, customer care and overall commitment to Home Hardware.

“I’m delighted Snapes Home Hardware has won this award,” said David Adams, chairman of Home Hardware. “The business was established in 1936, and Derek Snape, the second generation of Snapes, recently celebrated his 92nd birthday and retired from the business a few years ago.

"Craig Snape, wife Cheryl and their son Adam now run the business. In 2017 they opened an impressive two storey 1,000ft2 of additional retail, storage and showroom facilities. Their retail sales have grown and their turnover with Home Hardware during the past few years has increased considerably.”

Craig Snape commented: "Everyone at Snape & Sons Home Hardware are honoured to have received the award for Retailer of The Year. We are very grateful for the continued support from all the staff at Home Hardware who have the patience to deal with our never-ending calls. I’d also like to thank all our wonderful staff who all claim winning the award is down to them."
