The Independent Achievers Academy (IAA) is a year-long learning, recognition and business development programme for independent news and convenience retailers.

As well as rewarding outstanding achievements, the IAA provides retailers and their staff with practical advice on what is required to achieve the highest standards for their business.

From March each year, retailers are invited to benchmark their store across 12 core retail categories. We then compare national averages through mystery store visits. These benchmarks allow each store to see how they fare against their peers across the nation.

In September the IAA Top 100 is unveiled, and before the end of the year the Gala Dinner crowns the best retailer in each of the 12 core categories, as well the UK’s Overall Best Shop.

To benchmark your store, visit the IAA website here.

Since its launch in 2011, the Local Shop Summit has given retailers the opportunity to share ideas and network with other retailer influencers, build profitable relationships with leading suppliers and take new ideas back to their businesses.

On 4 October 2017 top local shop owners from around the UK gathered at The Oval in South London to share ideas, build valuable relationships and discuss how to succeed with some of the convenience market’s most forward-looking suppliers.

Now in its fifth year, the Local Shop Summit has previously seen keynote speakers including the MD of Pret a Manger and the founder of Shell’s Deli2Go offering, and panel discussions from leading suppliers including Lucozade Ribena Suntory, Mars Wrigley, Booker and JTI, and has provided hundreds of attending retailers with thousands of new ideas to take away.
