New Retail Manager for Holker Hall

Holker Hall & Gardens has appointed a new retail manager

Holker Hall & Gardens has appointed a new retail manager to oversee the day to day running of the retail operations at Holker.

Judith Wren joins Holker Hall following 30 years with The Furness Building Society and is looking forward to working with the teams in the Holker Food Hall and Gift Shop, both of which serve local customers as well as attracting a healthy level of custom from the tourist market.

The Gift Shop offers a high quality selection of toys, books, garden products, seasonal plants and toiletries both from local suppliers and international products from ethical sources.  The Food Hall which was set up five years ago after the foot and mouth crisis continues to showcase regional food and drink as well as specialities from further a field.

Judith joined Holker Hall on 1st November on one of the busiest weeks of the year, with the Holker Fireworks attracting almost 3,000 people on Friday 5th November and an impressive turnout for the Winter Market the following day.

Judith comments; "Being local I have had a lifelong connection at various levels with Holker.  As well as the obvious commercial need to operate a successful business I understand that there is also a need to preserve the quality and heritage for future generations and I believe the retail outlets at Holker can play a role in that."

"The employee and customer relation skills I have developed during my previous role will undoubtedly be invaluable to me as Retail Manager at Holker.  I believe business excellence comes through building strong relationships with staff, customers and suppliers.  I am keen to ensure we continue to deliver the highest standard of product and service to our customers and to assist in driving the business forward for all stakeholders."
