A family-owned jewellers firm has been shortlisted as Retailer of the Year.

Warrenders Jewellers, in Cheam Road, is up for the award at the UK Jewellery Awards for 2018 alongside nominations from across the country.

Finalists will be judged over the next few months before the winners are announced on July 4.

Richard Warrender, who runs the business with his brother Simon, said: “It is a huge honour to have been recognised in these prestigious awards and it would not have been possible without our dedicated team.

“We will keep our fingers crossed that we win on the night as that would be the perfect reward for all the hard work and commitment of each and every one of our team.”

Established in 1947, Warrenders Jewellers celebrated its 70th year in the business at the Epsom Downs Racecourse last July.

Mr Warrender’s father, Frank, was responsible for the business for more than four decades before passing it down to his children.
