Mike Weatherley, the Conservative Member of Parliament for Hove and Portslade, has visited award-winning local wine shop Quaff to congratulate owner Toby Pierce on his national Independent Retailer Award.
Quaff was recently recognised by the International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC) as the UK Independent Retailer of the Year 2012. Quaff has been trading since 2005 and, despite the recession, is a great success story on Portland Road. Mike popped in to meet Toby and congratulated him and his team on his wonderful wine business and prestigious award. For more information on Quaff, visit www.quaffwine.com.
Commenting, Mike said: “I am a great believer in good independent shops and Quaff is a fine example of a successful young and growing business in Brighton & Hove. Toby and all the staff at Quaff really deserve the recognition that the IWSC award has conferred. Quaff is such a wonderful shop that I am not surprised so many local residents come back again and again.”
