The Special Recognition Award is one of two awards given out annually by CYBEX - an international baby product brand, with over 170 independent retail stores across the UK & Ireland competing to be named at the awards dinner.

The Special Recognition Award is chosen by the team at CYBEX based on partners who have gone above and beyond throughout their entire relationship with CYBEX and continue to support and collaborate with the brand.

That is exactly what Eclipse Nursery Store has done for the last 10 years. Eclipse were chosen for this award after being one of CYBEX‘s longest standing retail partners, and also for their remarkable collaboration which they have developed from day one.
