On a very hot Thursday evening we were delighted that Fleur Anderson, the Member of Parliament for Putney joined us to celebrate with businesses in Putney. The last two years has been tough for all traders and those that have managed to survive are all amazing, but some go that extra mile and it is nice for them to be rewarded.
Positively Putney recently asked users of Putney what their favourite business was amongst a number of categories.
The favourite national retailer was Waterstones. We can all agree that this wonderful bookshop found inside Putney Exchange offer a vast range of books alongside excellent customer service. Alongside Waterstones in the national retailer category, H&M was the most popular choice. Offering a range of clothing for men, women and children, they can answer all our clothing needs.
Favourite independent retailer was Morrows, located on the corner of Putney High Street and Lacy Road. Owned by father and son, Graham and Philip Morrows and offering luxury socks and accessories.
Moving onto the Professional Services Business, this category raised some confusion as to what it included. However, the favourite was The Dentist on Putney High Street, with highly commended for Russell Cooke Solicitors, Mailboxes on Upper Richmond Road, and Leightons Opticians in Putney Exchange.
Finally our hospitality businesses which was hotly contested. The favourite restaurant went to HomeSW15 on Upper Richmond Road.
Highly commended went to Kashmir on Lacy Road, Tomoe on Upper Richmond Road, Gazette on Upper Richmond Road, Bills and Franco Manca on Putney High Street. Lots of great places to try if you fancy a meal out.
It was a wonderful evening with so many businesses celebrated. If you have not visited any of these listed then we recommend you do. You won’t be disappointed.
