Chosen by Claudia Hughes, director of womenswear agency APT
Owners Anne and Richard Furbank have built and maintained a fantastic business in Buckden over the years. Anne and her team have a clear vision and focus during the buying season as to what they need for the store and their customer base. Anne is incredibly loyal to her brands, but is fast to react to trends in the market and has been recognised several times via various awards.
Anne and Richard took the very brave step to diversify their business a few years ago by buying and renovating the George Hotel in Buckden. The George is next door to the shop and has a connecting door, which has really helped to boost business.
Anne also recently took over a second store in Newmarket, Suffolk, which was formerly Jane of Newmarket and a successful business in its own right. The team has done very well to retain its customers and bring in new ones.
