2nd Birthday Celebrations – Trophy Blog #26

Blog #26 – August 2013 sees our 2nd Birthday of trading from it’s current Market Lane location. In between April & August 2011, we ran the company from home as an ‘online only’ business. – To help with our 2nd year office celebrations, I have edited the column I wrote in April 2013. ~ This month we celebrate our 2nd birthday of trading. It all started at the dining room table and changing our ebay account name to LRB Trophies. Since then we have served over 1500 customers and we send our items to customers all over the world. After our first four months of online trading we we’re in a position for myself to give up my duty manager job at Argos and work full time from our current Market Lane location. In the last year or so we have really got into our stride after our setting up period. Winning the Selby Times Local Business Accelerator award really catapulted us into the limelight. We would like to thank all of our local customers for using us, many of them mention reading about our own award and ask if we have met Debra Meaden from Dragons Den yet, sadly the answer is No, but she is most welcome to pop in for a brew whenever she is in the North! Without sounding like a never ending awards acceptance speech, myself, my business partner Janet and brother Andrew would like to thank a few people who have provided help and guidance whenever it was needed; Keith Tiplady, Paul Spiteri, Nigel Adams MP and all our family and friends who have encouraged us and also pointed out in no certain terms where we can improve on things. We are always looking to expand and create an ‘LRB’ empire so keep an eye out on our future news.
