Afterwards, Miles of Tiles (Midlands) managing director Jeff Foster said: “We are very proud to receive this award.

“It is a great achievement to be recognised and awarded in this way and particularly so when we were up against some other fantastic businesses.

“Huge thanks must go to all of our staff, who work tirelessly to offer the best service and advice possible.

“Our staff ensure customers get the best possible experience when they shop at our stores and they will go the extra mile for our customers.

“And we’d also like to thank our loyal customers, who continue to support small local businesses like ourselves.”
