Glasswells home furnishings store has proudly presented Gary King, Manager of their Branch in Haverhill, with an award for 40 years of loyal service.

Gary King joined the family business shortly after leaving school, working in the separate carpet shop in Queens Square, Haverhill. Whilst working there as a junior Gary learned the many complexities of the carpet trade and his personal qualities of exacting accuracy and thoroughness soon promoted him to carpet department manager in 1983. Over his career at Glasswells, Gary has managed the Saffron Walden branch, as well as the store’s largest flooring department in Bury St Edmunds between 1995 and 2000.

Paul Glasswell, managing director explained, “Gary is an incredibly reliable, loyal and hardworking man. We have been very lucky to have him looking after our Haverhill branch for the past eighteen years and are very proud of the good reputation that Gary and his team have gained in the town. Gary is a model employee; he overcomes challenges with very little fuss and is a credit to the company. He has dedicated his working life to Glasswells, and for that we are grateful.”

Gary will be celebrating his milestone at Glasswells with the gift of some new fishing gear.

Paul Glasswell concluded, “At Glasswells, we pride ourselves on the knowledge, experience and exceptional customer service that our staff can offer our customers; that is what sets us apart from other retailers and makes us the number one home furnishings stores in East Anglia. Our long serving staff list is really rather extraordinary and it’s very satisfying for myself and the family that so many of our colleagues have enjoyed being at Glasswells for such large parts of their working life. ”
