The Shop at RAMM in Exeter Living Awards Finals
28 February 2018
RAMM is extremely happy to announce that The Shop at RAMM has been chosen as a finalist in the category of Retail for the Exeter Living Awards 2018! The Shop is in very good company, nominated alongside The Belt Makers, Bunyip Craft, The Grocer on the Green, Toot Garook and Peter Betteridge – Your Bed Expert.
The nomination is a credit to the Shop’s dedicated staff, who have been described as ‘delightfully helpful’ and ‘ambassadors for RAMM’ by its visitors. The Shop itself has also received great visitor feedback since its opening in October 2016:
“A really inspiring visit. A big thank you to the shop – the choices of gifts, which enhanced the museum experience, are excellent.”
Sourcing sustainable, Fairtrade and local merchandise wherever possible, the Shop strives to promote the best producers, makers and products. Inspired by RAMM’s vast collection, products are carefully selected to mirror the quality and diversity of the museum itself. With something for everyone, the Shop has a huge range of products for adults and children, including the ever popular Artist Makers case, which presently features stunning jewellery by Miriam Boy and Sue Gregor as well as beautiful ceramics by Dartmoor based artist Alison West. The Shop at RAMM is currently highlighting its diverse Dartmoor range – from walking guides to artisan soaps from The Dartmoor Soap Company – to accompany the exhibition ‘Dartmoor: A Wild and Wondrous Region’.
Adding to RAMM’s Success
The Shop’s shortlisting is the latest of many award successes for RAMM. Over the last year alone RAMM has received Gold for Large Attraction of the Year, Silver for Access and Inclusivity and Bronze for Artistic, Cultural and Learning Experience from The South West Tourism Excellence Awards and The Devon Tourism Awards. In addition to this, RAMM was named Favourite Museum or Historical Attraction in the Primary Times Reader Star Awards 2017, Top Family Favourite Attraction in the Exeter Baby Activities Awards 2017 and received a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for 2017.
We’re on a roll, so keep your fingers crossed for us on 12 April, when we’ll find out which finalist has been crowned the best retailer in the Exeter area!
