A Richmond pet food store is celebrating after winning a regional award.

The Raw Store, based on the Gallowfields Industrial Estate, was crowned the best pet care business at the Yorkshire heat of the England’s Business Awards.

Owner Nikki Chandler said: “Winning is a delight and means so much especially after the last two turbulent years.

“We were nominated by our wonderful customers and were judged by mystery shoppers and on our customers’ comments.

“I thank my team for their hard work and passion without whom I couldn’t have achieved what I have.”

The Yorkshire winners were announced at an event at the Marriott Hotel in Leeds on Wednesday.

The store will now go into the national finals held in March next year.
