Against all odds, Blackpool business, Chard, has secured their fourth title as the UK’s Bullion Dealer of the Year.
In a hotly contested competition which saw over 140 British bullion dealers battle for the most prestigious award in the trade, Chard secured 29.1% of the final vote. In an industry dominated by London and Birmingham dealers whose turnovers exceed hundreds of £ millions, over the last 12 months Chard has seen sales grow by 29.3%. They have put Lancashire on the map as a centre for high quality, low priced bullion.
The awards are hosted by Bullion.Directory, a specialist online directory that provides in-depth analysis of the global precious metal markets. 1042 bullion dealers from all over the world took part in the 2018 awards to fight for the right to be crowned 2018 Bullion Dealer of the Year in their region.
On hearing that Chard had won, Lawrence Chard said: “We are over the moon! It is a huge achievement and we are proud to be named as the UK’s 2018 Bullion Dealer of the Year. We want to shout the news from the top of Blackpool Tower and say a huge thank you to everyone who voted for us. Not only did we win this title but we also were voted the 2018 E-Commerce Dealer of the Year and the 2018 Numismatic Dealer of the Year in the global awards.
