Trophy Blog #84 – On the 16th of April we celebrated our 3rd birthday of trading in the trophy & engraving world. Three years ago we changed the name of our eBay account to LRB Trophies, and off we went. Since that day we have served over 2500 customers, with all sorts of trophies and engraving services, from all over the world. After our first four months of online trading we moved to our current Market Lane office and showroom. 2013 was a very busy year of trading, with many new customers and products sent to new territory. It was also very successful year for us both in progression and recognition. We won three social media awards and gained praise from a multi-millionaire retailer. Theo Paphitis has one of our trophies in his office. Our prize package from Theo Paphitis is still ongoing and we might have some exciting news to come soon. As soon as I know the full details I promise to let the ‘Trading Up’ readers know first. So watch this space! During the last three years, Selby and the surrounding area has slowly changed for the better for the shopper and trader. The economy is bit by bit gathering pace again and I’ve got my fingers, toes and eyes crossed that this continues. I still think that Selby could follow in Tadcaster’s footsteps and offer free parking, even if it is just a Tuesday morning or Saturday afternoon, if the powers that be can get the people into the town centre, it is up to the traders and businesses to do the rest. Sadly another two long established shops on Gowthorpe are closing down for good, both for different reasons. Hopefully they will not be empty for long and some of the staff can work in the new businesses.
