The A. Hume team celebrate at the ceremony.

The long-standing business was awarded Multichannel of the Year and Rising Star, which was collected by managing director, Rachel Thomson.

Rachel, who took over the reins at the much-loved retail store less than two years ago, said: “I honestly don’t even know how to articulate how I feel. It’s just been such a whirlwind, but it really is such a team effort and it’s the backing of the team as well as lots of other people that has got us here. It really is a testament to the unwavering support, passion, and hard work of the whole team.

The store was also nominated for Best Store Design and Innovator.
