OTTERY'S Abbotts DIY store has been named among the UK's top four independent hardware retailers.

The family business, in Jesu Street, was nominated by trade publication DIY Week and will now go head to head with three other UK retailers to be crowned 'Britain's Best Hardware Retailer'.

Owner Tony Abbott said: "'We are absolutely thrilled to bits, this came completely out of the blue.

"When you think how many independent DIY stores there are up and down the country, just to be nominated in the top four is a huge achievement.

"Its testament to all the hard work put in from all the family and staff at Abbotts, but most importantly all our customers, without whom them we wouldn't be here at all, so a big thank you to everyone."

Nominated independent retailers have shown exceptional customer service, product knowledge and training programs, as well as offering their customers excellent value for money.
