The Cardiff Life Awards are the business highlight of the city. With local companies battling it out in 20 categories, The Cardiff Life Awards has become known as one of the most prestigious and this year Leekes is a finalist!
After a record number of applicants this year, Leekes has been named a finalist in the retailer category along with seven other worthy competitors. All finalists will now be judged by a diverse panel from a range of professional backgrounds, before the winners are announced at the annual awards night.
This years the company will celebrate 120 years of trading and during that time Leekes has grown from a humble ironmonger in Tonypandy to an award winning retailer with five store across South Wales, the West and the Midlands. 2016 has been a particularly successful year with the expansion of out Llantrisant furniture floor along with the introduction of leading brands such as Lounge Co, Laura Ashley kitchens, Ted Baker bedding and Paul Hollywood bakeware.

This recognition is a reflection of the dedication and hard work that our teams deliver and the commitment of all those involved in the business. This year marks the company’s 120th anniversary and it is wonderful to have been recognised for the award.”
