A specialist shoe-fitting business in Potters Bar has won two prestigious awards.
Precious Soles won Best Independent Footwear Retailer 2020, and ‘Highly Commended’ Team of the Year 2020 in Drapers Independents Awards.
Judges looked at business models and strategy, ongoing innovation, outstanding customer service, strong communication, excellent product merchandising and investment in people.
Precious Soles was founded by Peter Varnavas in 2002 after looking for a career change from financial services. He has since built a reputation for a no-compromise approach to foot health and footwear fitting for adults and children.
Peter said of the award: “It is extremely rewarding to have been recognised with these awards from an industry body such as Drapers.
