Enfield Retailer of the Year

Sponsored by Enfield Council

This category recognises the hard work, business acumen, innovation and diversity of independent retailers in the Borough of Enfield.

WINNER: Home Care Preferred, Ken Waterhouse 

Homecare Preferred provides high quality care and support in people’s own homes and operates a retail outlet selling and hiring a range of independent living equipment from its shop in Winchmore Hill. The business provides a one stop shop solution for people who want to stay as independent as possible in their own home – offering short or long term support from 1 hour a day to long-term live in care as well as equipment and ancillary services.

Having trebled its workforce in 18 months to 74 staff, Homecare Preferred is a fast growing business which is creating new jobs for local people and has established an excellent reputation amongst local health professionals. Customers often comment that the niche retail outlet is “just what the local area needs.” Owner, Ken Waterhouse is now looking to develop an online shop and to franchise the business model to other parts of London.
