In the Retail Awards, presented in Manchester, Poplars beat off competition from businesses across the UK. The fourth generation Bedfordshire family business, opened state-of-the-art new premises earlier this year after a Â£2 million investment.
General manager Alastair Jackson said: “We were thrilled to have been nominated for an award.
“Competition was very strong in our category which makes winning even more satisfying, not just for Poplars as a business but for all our staff and for our customers.”
The business was praised for being independent with a strong focus on staff investment, customer choice and quality goods.
