Furniture Village wins big at Family Business of the Year Awards
Furniture Village has scooped three major awards at the 2022 Family Business of the Year Awards which took place virtually this week
The company was named Supreme Champion Family Business of the Year, Retail Family Business of the Year and London & South East Family Business of the Year after being recognised for its “consistently innovative approach to retail, rich and meaningful family-first culture and strong growth performance, delivering sustained competitive advantage”.
Charlie Harrison, commercial director at Furniture Village, said: “We are humbled to have won not one, but three awards at the Family Business of the Year Awards.
“Our philosophy of ‘doing it right’ spans across our entire business, and it’s a real testament to our staff and stores to have won all three awards.
“Family is the lifeblood of our business, not just the Harrison family, but many other families that put their heart and soul into making our business what it is today.”
Businesses were judged on a range of criteria including philanthropic activities and post-pandemic challenges, as well as how much involvement family members play in the day-to-day operations.
Family Business United’s managing director Paul Andrews said: “It is an absolute honour to champion Furniture Village, celebrating the immense contribution they make to the local, regional, and national economy.
“Furniture Village’s contribution deserved to be recognised and the Family Business of the Year Awards celebrate the very best of British, family firms that have a narrative, clearly defined values, and a real sense of purpose.”
Harrison added: “It’s fair to say we’ve been challenged on a number of occasions over the past few years, yet through all of this, we’ve achieved a remarkable milestone of our biggest turnover ever.
“From post-pandemic recovery that has seen supply chain pressures, to world-wide shipping issues for the entire consumer industry, this fantastic milestone brings us back to our philosophy of ‘doing it right’, showing we can pull through and take a magnificent win along the way.”
