“I think the Awards Program is fantastic – it really celebrates the retail industry in Australia. For our amazing team, it’s great recognition for all the hard work that they do, and the passion and dedication that they put in. It’s all about the people who make our business great.”
“For Lush, winning this award is huge for us in recognising the efforts of our team in our stores and in our factory. We’re very grateful for the chance to share their achievements, the fantastic service they’ve provided the customers and the hard work they’ve put in over the year to achieve the great result we’ve had.”
