Havens are delighted to be chosen as a finalist in the retail category of the Essex Countywide Business Awards, not least as this year we shall be celebrating 110 years of trading.
Still very much a family business based in Hamlet Court Road Westcliff-on-sea, the trading principles remain the same as those in 1901 – Provide good quality product, at the right price and support this in a good retail environment with great customer service.
The company has developed over the years from being mainly a China and Glass store to more of an Emporium selling Jewellery, Perfume and Cosmetics, Giftware, Housewares and Homewares.
Brands are also key to the success, with Chanel perfumes, Clarins, Swarovski Jewellery mixed with the more traditional offer of Dartington Glass, Waterford Crystal and Wedgwood China leading the way.
What is more, through the www.havens.co.uk website goods are now being despatched to all corners of the World expanding the Havens brand. The success of the website has just led to 2010/11 being a record year for the Havens group and long may that continue.
Being a finalist alongside so many other great local businesses is a true honour and we thank all those
who nominated and support us year in year out.
