The votes have been flooding in from the public and we can now announce the winners of the ‘At Your Service Awards 2009’. This celebration of excellent customer service in Hove highlights 14 businesses, as voted for by the public, as the best places in the west of the city for exceptional service.
This is the third year running for the popular competition and awards will be handed out at the southern end of George Street in Hove, on Friday 4th December at 10:30am.
The Best Female Business Personality was won this year by Karen Wells of Pet's Holiday Home and scooping the award for Male Business Personality for the second year running was Mark Necus from Klodhoppers in Blatchington Road. Also winning again are Fine Records in George Street, City Books in Western Road and Frinj Hairdressing in Portland Road.
Members of the public have been nominating their favourites, and it’s clear that Hove’s businesses have been offering consistently great service all year. Praise has been heaped on the ‘upbeat staff’ from Frinj hairdressing, and the ‘Brilliant service’ of Pets Holiday Home is also hard to ignore; the Bali Brasserie is apparently a ‘home from home’ and customers of Sally’s Hair and Beauty ‘Always leave the store feeling happy and laughing’. More often, people have been nominating their favourite businesses because they have them returning time and time again, for great service and for consistently raising the standards.

- Best Lifestyle Shop: Fine Records – George Street
- Best Newcomer: The Book Nook - First Avenue
- Best Specialist Business: Canhams Butchers - Church Road
