Five Star Spas has again swept the boards at the 2016 Swimming Pool and Spa Association (SPASA) SA Awards for Excellence, winning the coveted ‘Retailer of the Year’ Award while adding a further gold and a bronze to its tally.
The ‘Retailer of the Year’ Award is very much the ‘grand prix’ award in the retailer category, placing Five Star Spas as the very best among the best of all retailers selling either swimming pools, spas or both in South Australia.
The award, along with a gold award for ‘Spa Retailer of the Year’ and a bronze award for ‘Residential Pre-engineered Portable Spas’, was presented to Five Star Spas’ Founder and Managing Director Laurie Mallia at the gala awards evening at Adelaide Oval on June 18, 2016.
“It’s a great feeling to know we triumphed over the other big, established swimming pool and spa retailers in the state,” Managing Director Laurie Mallia said.
“It’s even more pleasing to know that it acknowledges our consistent standards of product and service excellence as this award – along with the other two – backs up what we achieved last year when SPASA SA recognised Five Star Spas with gold for ‘Spa Retailer of the Year’ and ‘Residential Pre-engineered Portable Spas’.
“But perhaps most gratifying is that it’s the independent responses of customers, on matters such as customer service and industry and product knowledge that determines the winners.
So it’s a great vote of confidence that we’re consistently doing the right thing by our customers.”
Five Star Spas opened its first shopfront at the Home Ideas Centre on Anzac Highway in Adelaide two years ago and now operates from a purpose-designed showroom in Westfield Marion Shopping Centre.
The company has also recently expanded into New South Wales with a showroom at the Prospect Homemaker Centre in Sydney’s bustling west.
The proudly SA owned and operated family business stocks only the best Australian-made standard and customised products, headlined by the premium quality Lanark spas for which it holds the exclusive South Australian rights.
Five Star Spas’ oasis of outdoor products includes spas, swim spas, saunas, gazebos, outdoor kitchens and outdoor blinds and shutters.
The Swimming Pool and Spa Association (SPASA) SA Awards for Excellence celebrate the very best in the industry. As a dual gold winner, Five Star Spas will join other South Australian category winners to represent the state in the SAPSA National awards in Sydney later in the year.
