Target named store of the year
TARGET Country Cannonvale have set the bar for excellence in retail by winning Target Country Store of the Year at the 2010 Target Rondel Awards held in Geelong late last month.
The Target Country Store of the Year Award recognises superior achievements on all key business measures across the organisation's 119 Target Country Stores.
Target's Managing Director Launa Inman said Target Country Cannonvale was a deserving recipient of the award.
“The Cannonvale team have a passion for excellence and work together to continually improve results across the store,” she said.
“They have not only provided a great service but have also developed a strong standing within the local community.”
Target Country Cannonvale Store Manager Morgan Williams said it was a great honour to win this prestigious award.
“I was especially pleased to win because competition was very tough with an extremely high-calibre group of nominees in this category.”
Target Country Cannonvale can also boast the honour of having a finalist in the Sustainability/Environmental Award category.
Customer Service Assistant Chloe Sullivan was nominated for her ability to energise the Cannonvale team to be more sustainable and her commitment to reducing the store's environmental impact.
Store Manager Morgan Williams praised Chloe for her efforts.
“It can be difficult for smaller Target Country stores to recycle to the same degree as larger stores due to limited facilities, but Chloe has worked within these limitations and introduced a recycling system for all paper waste,” she said.
“Everyone in the store has supported Chloe's initiative and the team now fills a large Visy bag with recycled paper every week.”
