We reprint this e-mail received by La Brazza

Dear Nadine,

We were in France on Saturday and due to your speedy reply to our e-mail, we purchased 6400 Lambert and Butler cigarettes from your shop.

I am just writing to say that I found all of your staff to be very polite and helpful. Your shop was extremely busy on the day with customers queuing outside! But when I eventually came to be served, I was met with a very polite hello and a smile and although I don't know the name of the lady who served me, I have to say that she is a credit to you. It was obvious that your staff were under a lot of pressure due to the number of customers on the day but all of them were extremely helpful and polite. You are an extremely lucky employer to have such polite and professional staff!!!

I would be very grateful if you would pass on my gratitude to your staff for a job very well done.

I would like to wish you all a wonderful Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
