The business has grown significantly during this time from just a handful of retailers to over 2,600 stores. We are also very proud to be one of the largest employers in the region.”
He added: “Of course, no birthday is complete without a party and we will be celebrating with our retailers at next month’s annual Conference & Expo where will also be unveiling some exciting new initiatives.”
