Waterloo's favourite independent shop
A WeAreWaterloo.co.uk poll has revealed the area's most-loved independent shop is Rivers Remedies.
The natural beauty and healthcare shop on Lower Marsh - formerly known as Waterloo Body Station - beat some extremely stiff competition from fellow Waterloo independents.
Customers voted for the shop for a range of reasons including friendly service and the quality of its products.
Competition prize winner Sinead McGarvey said simply "great service, great ethos, great products" when describing why she had voted for Rivers Remedies. Sinead will now be given a £100 voucher for the shop.
Rivers Remedies owner Rebecca Rivers said: "I'm thrilled to have won. It's so great that our lovely customers have voted for us.
"We're especially pleased given that Waterloo has such a superb range of independent retailers. Thank you so much to our fans!"
Rebecca's plans for the shop include building on the success of the launch of its own-range of scented candles and incense sticks and continuing to provide top quality treatments in its therapy rooms.
