Crown Decorating Centres has named its branch in Doncaster as Store of the Year 2019 out of its network of more than 135 stores at its annual Crown Decorating Centres Conference.
The team in Doncaster, led by store manager Daniel Reed was awarded the conference’s top accolade after a fantastic sales performance for the year, beating both its 2018 sales figures and 2019 sales targets by around 30 per cent.
Commenting on the store’s win at the conference, Daniel said: “Being named as Crown Decorating Centres’ Store of the Year 2019 is an incredible accolade for the Doncaster store, and my team and I are proud of this recognition from Crown Paints for what has been an exceptional year for us. My thanks go to the whole Doncaster store team and our area manager Liam Wager for their support in 2019.”
