Finalist at Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards
The Parksville and Qualicum Beach Chambers of Commerce Business Excellence Awards are an opportunity to recognize and honour businesses and individuals that have made outstanding contributions to the community in 2021. M&N Mattress and Sofa was named a top three finalist in the Service Excellence category for Parksville and district, alongside fellow finalists Parks West Business Products and Beavers & Bears Wax Bar.
“To be recognized by our own community is really special,” Mark says. “We’ve been serving Parksville for 21 years and sincerely value the relationships we’ve been able to build over that time. This is a special community and we’re very proud to be a part of it.”
Finalist for the Business Examiner Awards
The 21st Grant Thornton LLP Vancouver Island Business Excellence Awards celebrated business excellence on Vancouver Island on March 17 in Victoria, and M&N Mattress and Sofa was among the finalists!
“This was a great celebration about the best of the best in Vancouver Island like never before,” says Mark MacDonald of Business Examiner. “It’s been a very long two years since we’ve been able to gather at events like this, and we’re grateful that so many wonderful businesses have been able to make it through such difficult, unprecedented times and have success stories to share and we could celebrate with them.”
All finalists were selected by a panel of third-party judges not employed by the Business Examiner group. Earning a nomination for this year’s awards was extra special, as businesses were competing against two years of applications due to the pandemic. M&N Mattress was a finalist in the crowded ‘Retail Business of the Year’ category.
“There are some really excellent businesses in our category, and we’re proud that M&N Mattress and Sofa stands shoulder-to-shoulder with each of them,” says Mark Nagra, owner of M&N. “We pride ourselves on providing exemplary customer service, so it was very special to be recognized as a finalist.”
