...and the winner is...Cult Pens!

Yes folks, your favourite pen retailer was not only nominated for a national award, but went on to win it! We were shortlisted in May for the Customer Award of the Internet Retailing Awards. The judging panel was comprised of internet retailing professionals from Google, M&S, House of Fraser, eBay, Waitrose and many more. The nomination itself was a great boost during a time where we were up to our eyeballs in stressful IT systems changes. Winning seemed unlikely as our co-nominees were John Lewis, Ocado, ASOS and Lovehoney – all fantastic businesses. However, we’re suckers for a party so a crack team of Devon pen-pushers made their way to the metropolis for a glittering night with the stars of ecommerce at a swanky Mayfair venue last Thursday. Photos (proof that we're not totally camera shy) below!

Imagine our surprise when the announcement came. Cue a chorus of ‘Cult who?’ from the assembled throng, and much jumping up and down from the Cult Pens team. Suffice it to say that we partied on with renewed vigour until, tired and emotional, we were eventually evicted from the premises by weary staff. 

A huge thank you to the team at Internet Retailing for a great party; and to the judging panel for recognising our work. Thank you also to all our wonderful customers – we couldn’t have done it without you! Customer service is truly a team effort which involves every single member of the company, and it’s fantastic to know that it’s been recognised at this level.

Cult Pens are: Simon & Amanda Walker, with Michael, Matt, Lynn, Nick H, Andrew, Louise, Jess, Nick W, Tammy, Helen, Becky, Kath, Martin, Olivia, Lynsey, Elliot and Herbie the springer spaniel.

*Win 1 of 5 Cult Pens goody bags*

 

Exclusively available at the Internet Retailing Awards, we thought you lovely people might like a taste of the action, so we have 5 goody bags to give away!

Each bag contains:
