STOURBRIDGE shop Hallmark Cards could be in line for a major award after being nominated as one of six regional finalists in the Retas Awards.

The shop, which is situated in the Ryemarket shopping centre, will be representing the Wales and Midlands region in the best independent greeting card retailer category at a glitzy awards ceremony which takes place at The Dorchester in London in early July.

The event recognises the UK's best greeting card retailers with Hallmark being nominated by one of its suppliers.

It's the first time Hallmark has been nominated as an individual store and manager Nicky Whitefoot described the shop's selection as a real morale booster.
