A Honiton card shop is hoping to clinch the crown at a prestigious awards ceremony this year.

Just Cards, in High Street, has secured a place in the final of the Retas Awards, which were launched by Progressive Greetings magazine to recognise and reward the UK’s best greeting card retailers.

The outlet has been in Honiton for 30 years, and ran by Maggie Wynn for the last 11 years.

She said: “I am absolutely thrilled to be acknowledged.

“I could not do it without our lovely customers. Honiton is a lovely town to work in.

“I hope we win!”

All Retas finalists were decided as a result of an industry-wide poll of greeting card suppliers, reps and agents and validated by a panel of experts.

The winners of The Retas 2018 will be revealed at an awards lunch at the Dorchester Hotel, London, on July 11.
