Banks Lyon Jeweller’s Kendal store has been named as a finalist for Store Design of the Year in the UK Jewellery Awards 2018.
The jeweller’s, whose flagship Lancaster store has been open since 1985, made the shortlist of the top eight jewellery store designs in the UK for their recently opened Kendal store.
Owner of Banks Lyon Jeweller, Rodney Banks Lyon, was pleased with being named as a finalist and noted how the whole family had a hand in the nomination.
He said: “We’re extremely proud to be named as a finalist for such a prestigious award. This is made even sweeter as the whole family was involved in the design process of the Kendal store.
“My wife, Jasmine, is an interior designer and she designed the whole store with our customers in mind, whilst my daughter, Maxine, headed up the marketing of the branch.”
To be named as a finalist for the award, Banks Lyon had to submit a short video showing the interior of the store, submit professional images of the store and answer several questions on the design of the store.
Maxine Banks Lyon, Marketing Director at Banks Lyon Jewellers said: “We take a real pride in ensuring our valued customers’ are able to shop in the perfect environment with us.
“It’s fair to say the launch of our store in Kendal has been a real success and being named as a finalist for this award less than a year after the launch of the store is brilliant.”
The winners of each category will be announced at the Artillery Garden in London on July 4, 2018.
