Sarum College Bookshop has been named as ‘Independent Large Retail Store of the Year Runner Up 2016’ in the recent national awards presented by Christian Resources Together.
The Bookshop is part of Sarum College, which runs specialist courses in theology and spirituality.
The judges said the awards “are testament of the passion and commitment of those who manage and work in the business.”
Jenny Monds, Sarum College Bookshop Manager said, “The bookshop has a wonderful, dedicated team of staff and volunteers and a loyal customer base. I see the award is a boost for all the team, and a thank you to our customers for supporting us.”
“This is a shop which is to be highly commended for having a vision and strategy to develop the business outside of its core market and… [is] well worth a visit,” said Clem Jackson, editor of Together Magazine.
The awards cover all aspects of the Christian book trade, and winning books from other award categories will be on display in the shop.
Sarum College Bookshop welcomes all book-lovers and has a wide range of stock, including novels and local interest titles, as well as cards and gifts. Staff are happy to order books on any subject, including out-of-print titles.
