Capricorn Coast Hardware top outfit
By ANGELA NORVAL ? CAPRICORN Coast Hardware has been named the Best in the Business.
The Yeppoon hardware retailer had more nominations from its customers than any other business in The Morning Bulletin/ANZ Best in the Business Awards.
Winners of the prestigious competition were named at a gala dinner last night.
The Morning Bulletin Special Projects team leader Matthew Hickson said the result was testament to the focus Capricorn Coast Hardware put on its customers with top-notch customer service.
More than 200 business people from Rockhampton and Yeppoon were at the dinner where 24 winners were announced.
The Morning Bulletin had an overwhelming response to this year's awards and the competition was tight with some of the final winners in each category coming down to the last vote.
The winners were decided by Bully readers, who voted via a nomination form published in the newspaper.
Mr Hickson said the awards dinner was a culmination of a lot of hard work on behalf of organisers, but also the businesses.
"To be nominated requires these business people to provide quality service every time to so many customers and that is why we received so many nominations, well into the thousands.
"We have also been pleased to have the support of ANZ throughout the whole awards process as the major sponsor of these awards.
