Dedicated Nikon dealer Grays of Westminster has won a special award from Nikon UK after sales of camera equipment shot up 42% on a year ago.

Nikon UK general manager Simon Coleman said: ‘Their approach to customer service and support continues to drive sales of the highest order and we are pleased to acknowledge this result.’

Gray Levett, founder of the London-based store, said: ‘We are delighted to have Grays of Westminster’s hard work acknowledged in this the 50th anniversary of the legendary Nikon F.

‘We pride ourselves on offering our customers the highest levels of personal service and couple this with our vast range of Nikon (both new and second-hand) – thought to be widest in the world.’

Gray, who was presented with a crystal glass trophy to mark the honour, told Amateur Photographer that the 42% sales increase figure includes sales of second-hand gear.
