COSMETIC specialists helping to make inner beauty shine understand the plight of the independent retailer.

Aspire Clinic, based in the prestigious Madejski Stadium complex, is backing the Independent Retailer of the Year category for this year's Reading Retail Awards.

As one of Berkshire leading aesthetics clinics, the team at Aspire believe they have the recipe for success when it comes to making the right impression in the world of business.

Jenny O’Neill, clinic director, explains: "We feel it could not be more appropriate for us to be a sponsor, as the Aspire team understands the extra touches needed to make independent retailers stand out from the crowd.

"We love the uniqueness independent retailers bring to the shopping experience and what better way to celebrate local businesses providing an outstanding service than with a Reading Retail Award.

"Reading is a hub of wonderful and diverse independent businesses, with great customer service, innovation and quality that not only compete with, but also excel over their competitors in larger cities. Aspire Clinic is a prime example of this."

For the last decade Aspire has been providing treatments to give clients enhanced beauty and the opportunity to feel positive about their appearance.

With customer service at the heart of their business, Aspire is keen to promote the success of the everyday heroes in the world of retail.

Ms O'Neill added: “Being an independent business is about valuing customers and focusing on quality rather than quantity.

"After running a busy Harley Street clinic, with restricted time for patient consultations, I opened Aspire Clinic in Reading, vowing to give my patients as much time as they needed to ensure a relaxed, comfortable, positive and individual treatment experience.”

Tickets are now on sale for the Reading Retail Awards 2017, which will this year be hosted by Sangeeta Bhabra from ITV and Reading FC legend Ady Williams.
