After several years in hibernation the Rossland Business Awards have been resurrected to celebrate Rossland’s business best.

Winners of Rossland Business Awards were announced at the Rams Head Inn on Dec. 12.

Five categories for the awards included Young Entrepreneur of the Year, Professional Service, Customer Service Excellence, Business Excellence and Business Person of the Year.

“We have so many excellent businesses in our area and we wanted to acknowledge the business community by celebrating the best” explained Paul Gluska, President of the Rossland Chamber of Commerce.

The winners of the awards are the following:

Young Entrepreneur of the Year: Lisa Milne, Royal Theatre

Professional Service: Judy Griffith Notary

Customer Service Excellence: Red Pair Shoe Store

Business Excellence: Mountain Nugget Chocolate Company

Business Person of the Year: Amanda Hamilton, Tails Pet Supplies & Service

When asked about winning the Customer Service Excellence Awards, Stephanie Robinson of the Red Pair Shoe Store replied, “I am truly humbled by this award, and I couldn’t do it without my staff and such a great customer base.”

In September of 2012 the Chamber solicited nominations from the community at large for each of the categories. From then a selection committee decided upon the finalists for each category. It was the members of the Rossland Chamber of Commerce that voted on the winners.

“I am extremely honoured to have received this award,” explains Amanda Hamilton from Tail’s Pet Supplies & Service. “I was thrilled to be nominated and it means a lot to me that the business community (my peers) voted for me.”

The event will continue to run in the 2013 year highlighting Rossland’s business brightest and best! For more information on the event contact the Rossland Chamber of Commerce.
