Each year the Independent Hardware Group (IHG) hosts an annual award night and recognises outstanding achievement in a range of categories. One of these categories is WA Trade Store of the Year and in 2019 the honours went to Thornton’s Mitre 10. Thornton’s Manager Rob Perisic was presented the award by Hayley Radalj (WA state Manager for IHG and Mark Laidlaw (CEO of IHG)

This award is acknowledgement for the hard work and service provided by the store staff and the investment in infrastructure which provides the relatively small town of Denmark with a vast range of products, services and everything required to build, renovate and maintain local homes and businesses. Thorntons Mitre 10 is now in the running for national Trade store of the Year which will be presented at an Award Ceremony in February on the Gold Coast.

‘As manager of the store, I’d like to acknowledge and thank our staff for their continued effort and commitment to our customers, our suppliers for their ongoing support and most importantly our customers for their patronage and loyalty.

With a number of store upgrades in the pipeline, we are committed to improving our hardware offering and look forward to providing a greater level of service and convenience to Denmark in the future’.
