Helloworld's Whangarei team has nailed the top honour at an in-house annual nationwide awards night held in Christchurch recently.

The Whangarei store is the travel brand's Top Helloworld Store for 2017. Helloworld Whangarei also received The Top Cruise Store Award for achieving the highest value of cruise holiday sales.

Store owner Lynne Bennett said she was "lost for words, but over the moon to be winning the Top Store Award" as she accepted the trophy with her top-selling team on stage with her.

She later said, "The growth that we achieved is a direct reflection of the amazing acceptance of the brand change to Helloworld for our Whangarei store."
