Studio Retail Limited are celebrating being shortlisted for two Red Rose Awards – the E-commerce Business Award and the Large Business Award.

Now in its 9th year, the Red Rose Awards provides the “best possible platforms to promote success, and to encourage inter-trading in the county”, commemorating Lancashire business, commerce and industry.

The nomination for the E-commerce Business Award comes after the incredible digital transformation that the company has seen over the last 12 months. Traditionally a catalogue business, Studio is now running at 79% online with the hard copy catalogue acting as an advertisement – simplistic inspiration – for their customers.

Understanding the need for continuous growth, Studio has put a focus on recruitment over recent years. Employing over 2400 people in peak periods makes Studio one of the borough’s largest employers.

Sharon Benson, HR Director at Studio, commented:

“We are incredibly proud to be shortlisted for the two awards. It’s very much a team effort – a testament to the hard work, dedication and determination throughout the company.”
