The 14th Annual RLI Awards

On April 3rd, the Retail Leisure International Awards were held at Universal Studios in Hollywood at a spectacular evening – a celebration of all the innovative retail and leisure experiences and concepts from around the world. The Pall Mall Barbers team were in attendance as we were shortlisted for the RLI Rising Star 2019 Award.

Presented by the Department for International Trade, the Rising Star Award recognises “the entrepreneurial spirit, achievements and long-term ambitions of up-and-coming retail businesses embarking on an international expansion program” – and for us is an acknowledgement to our commitment to excellent service and customer experience that we value so much here at Pall Mall Barbers. After the ceremony, we were invited to explore the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and celebrate our win!

Rewarding Excellence

At the beginning of the night, RLI Publisher Jayne Rafter said: “Tonight, we pay tribute to the very best of the best, the innovators and those that dare to push the boundaries; we reward those dynamic projects and concepts that excite the senses with stunning architecture, exemplary customer service, products that ‘wow’ and that aren’t afraid to take risks, refusing to settle for anything but the very best.”

The winners of the RLI Awards 2019 were selected by a distinguished panel of 15 judges

Speaking of the win, Managing Director and Founder of Pall Mall Barbers Richard Marshall said: “It is so exciting for all of our hard work in developing Pall Mall Barbers into a global brand to be recognised with such a prestigious award – and drives us all to keep Pall Mall Barbers growing and expanding!”
