NOMINATIONS have started flooding in for The Observer Westpac Best in Business Awards and some businesses have impressed.

Auscare Pharmacy in Gladstone Centro shopping centre has already received several nominations with nominators commenting on commitment to customer service.

Manager Phoebe Peh said the business focused on having a team that was knowledgeable and would put in the effort to ensure customers were getting what they needed.

She said it was often about going beyond the norm, even delivering medication when customers struggled to come in.

Ms Peh said she was thrilled to be part of the Best in Business Awards because they were a chance for small businesses to receive recognition for their efforts.

There is plenty of talk in Gladstone about the arrival of big companies, but not so much about the efforts of our small businesses.

The Best in Business Awards are your chance to give a pat on the back to businesses that have provided good service.
