The Powerhouse has once again excelled in the prestigious IER - Innovative Electrical Retailing Awards.
For 28 years IER has been the gold standard in recognising outstanding products, suppliers and retailers in the electrical industry and although this year this national event had to be hosted digitally, the competition was just as fierce.
The Powerhouse has previously won categories in 2018 and 2019 and on 7th August 2020 came away with an impressive total of three:
Commenting on the win Gavin Murphy, Head of Retail, from Powerhouse said, “We are, absolutely delighted that we are able to put Jersey on the map as a centre of excellence in electrical retailing. Everything we do at Powerhouse is driven by our genuine desire to make sure that islanders have the choice and retail experience that, not only equals, but surpasses the best of what UK stores offer and this is proof that we are achieving that.”
In addition to the IER Awards, Powerhouse was a 2019 finalist for the ERT Best Consumer Electronics & Domestic Appliances Retailer, and this year won the 2020 PCR Best Independent Retailer, having also been a finalist in 2019. Locally recognition has come from the Sure Customer Service Awards where the team were 2018 finalists in Best Service from Retail, going on to be highly commended in the same category in 2019. The team are also finalists in Network Group’s Retailer of the Year for 2020 which is due to be judged in November.
Gavin adds, “As well as congratulating the whole team and of course recognising our rising star, Richard, we want to thank all of our customers across the island for their continued support, particularly through the recent exceptional times, that is a reward in itself.”
