Ready for the biggest night

WE’RE almost there. After months of judging visits that reached all across Scotland the finalists have been chosen and we’re all ready for the biggest night on the Scottish convenience retailing industry’s social calendar – the Scottish Grocer Awards.


Comedian, actor, writer and director Alistair McGowan is the multi-talented host of this year’s awards event on 10 March at the Hilton, Glasgow.

On the night we’ll find out who are the convenience retailing champs in 20 different awards.

We’ve been looking for the Best Soft Drinks outlet of the Year and the Confectionery Retailer of the Year.
We’ve travelled the country in search of the best dairy retailers and the best chilled category stores.

In a changed world for the tobacco market we’ve found retailers who have really risen to the challenges of tobacco and tobacco accessories retailing. We’ve been looking for the best with bakery, the best symbol stores, the merchandising experts and more.


And who will take the Award for Industry Achievement?

Find out at and next month in Scottish Grocer.
