SPAR Scotland launches new store awards programme

Category: Recipes

SPAR Scotland, the leading Scottish wholesaler and SPAR convenience retailer, has launched a new awards programme and winners will be announced at its 2022 Tradeshow being held in Aviemore on 22 September. 

To celebrate the incredible work stores have been doing throughout the year, SPAR Scotland is kicking off a new awards programme which puts a spotlight on individual store achievements which have made a positive impact on communities.

There are four different categories and judging will take place across independent and company owned SPAR stores all over Scotland.  

The four categories are:

  • Company owned store of the year – sponsored by Hovis

  • Independent store of the year – sponsored by AG Barr

  • Company owned community store of the year – sponsored by Graham’s the Family Dairy

  • Independent community store of the year – sponsored by Brewdog

SPAR stores will be judged across multiple areas over three-months this summer.  Each category sponsor has agreed the award criteria and will help in deciding on the winning stores.

Colin McLean, CEO of SPAR Scotland, said: “We know we have some great stores and great retailers, and we want to use our new awards programme to showcase what they do. This will be all about finding and crowning the best of the best in SPAR around Scotland.

The award winners will be announced at SPAR Scotland’s Tradeshow at Aviemore which is heralded as being one of the biggest retail events to take place in Scotland this year.

The criteria for these awards will cover excellence in store exterior and interior, product display, POS on display, cleanliness, staff/team engagement and interaction with our customers. 

The Community Store of the Year category will specifically look at what a SPAR store and retailer has done within their local community in terms of supporting local groups and charities, fundraising events, and how they work hand in hand with their community throughout the year.

Taking place in the heart of Aviemore and the Cairngorms National Park, the SPAR Scotland Tradeshow will be held at the MacDonald Hotel and Resort on Thursday 22nd September 2022.

Over 180 national and Scottish suppliers are set to attend the sell-out event. Supplier registration has been extended until 29th April 2022, but space is now extremely limited.
