Diverse Gifts Wins A RETA!

Brixton’s much loved independent gift store, Diverse has recently won a RETA, being crowned Best Independent Greeting Card Retailer in London by an industry-wide poll.

The RETAs awards, launched in 2005 by Progressive Greetings Worldwide magazine, recognising excellence across the whole greeting card retailing spectrum.

The UK public spent £1.5 billion on greeting cards last year, with Diverse beating off stiff competition to win their category.

“The UK leads the world in greeting cards, which continue to form a vital role in social communication. Cards are tangible proof to show you care, in the good times and the tough times. The passion the winners of The Retas 2023 have shown towards maintaining a wonderful selection of greeting cards, covering all occasions and sending needs, as well as commitment to their communities at large, makes them very special indeed,”

Jakki Brown, Managing Director of Max Publishing, which owns and organises The RETAS.

“We are so thrilled to be recognised by the industry. We’re also grateful to the many independent brands we work with that supply us with innovative and creative cards that keep our customers coming back.”
