CONFECTIONERY Retailer of the Year is one of the most fiercely contested Scottish Grocer Awards categories and this year’s final features three top-tier contenders.
l real community store with Post Office and close links with the local school, Spar Logan’s Road, Motherwell, has put a lot of thought into confectionery. Working closely with reps, the store team maintains an excellent main display that utilizes a host of POS materials.
l par Forfar is a family-run store which recently underwent a refurbishment that puts confectionery at its heart.
It features excellent ranging of core confectionery products. Visible through the shop window, the large hanging bag confectionery display is especially impressive.
l udges were also impressed to see that standards have been maintained at the store that won last year. Based on a busy high street, Day Today Saltcoats treats confectionery with great care and enthusiasm, and the team will be hoping to repeat its 2015 victory.
