The UK’s top convenience retailers were announced last night at the Independent Achievers Academy (IAA) Gala in London.
The Gala follows nine months of benchmarking, store visits, assessments and interviews to compare and offer tailored advice to the 413 stores that took part.
Amrit Singh from Nisa Local High Heath was recognised as this year’s Overall Best Shop. His store is the beating heart of the community and is performing strongly across all 12 categories. His excellent use of data, strong digital presence, thorough processes, imaginative in-store theatre and new vape concession set him apart. Full details on what made Amrit stand out and links to all the Category Stars can be found below.
A selection of photos from a night that celebrated the achievement of hardworking independent retailers and fantastic local shops is also available below. A full set can be found on our Facebook page here.
