Harveys Star August 2017August’s Harveys star has been jointly awarded to Torban Aspinall (Fashion Floor Supervisor), Jean Eastwood (Visual Merchandiser) and Oli Burbage-Hall (Piece Hall Department Manager) for their work in devising the current Halifax heritage theme running throughout the main store windows.

The idea was first proposed by Store Director, Tony Murray in April and led to a challenging, informative, and often unexpected journey through our proud local heritage. Harveys are extremely grateful for the incredible support our team received from the local community, with individual contributions to be acknowledged alongside the displays.
