Banks Lyon Jewellers Crowned Best Independent Jeweller in the North

The jeweller, who have branches in Kendal and Lancaster, were crowned the best independent jeweller in the North of England.

Marketing Director at Banks Lyon, Maxine Banks Lyon, said: “It’s an honour to be named regional winner in the Inspiring Independents 2017.

“It’s also a huge accomplishment for Banks Lyon to be among the top five independent jewellers in the nation and is down to our team’s hard work.”

The event run by jewellery publication the Retail Jeweller, and held in association with the Company of Master Jewellers, scoured the nation to find the top 100 independent jewellers.

A shortlist of 100 Inspiring Independents who make up this year’s list were voted for by their peers in the jewellery industry.

This shortlist was then put to a panel of suppliers who cast their vote for the most inspiring retailers in each region, where Banks Lyon came out on top in the North.

The winners were unveiled in a lunchtime awards ceremony at London’s Holborn Hotel last month.

Maxine Banks Lyon went on to add: “To go up against so many brilliant independent jewellers across the region and come on top is a special feeling.

“It’s been a fantastic year for Banks Lyon, along with the award win, opening our Kendal store is a particular highlight of mine.”

"To go up against so many brilliant independent jewellers across the region and come on top is a special feeling."
