2018 Category Star: Scott Graham, McLeish, Inverurie, Aberdeenshire

in association with Coca-Cola European Partners

Scott uses his data to its fullest potential, not just running daily reports, but reviewing each category on a six-monthly basis and looking closely at sales, margins and bestsellers. Scott spends a day each month visiting other retailers across the UK to find out what’s working well in other locations and puts a lot of emphasis on visiting local suppliers. He does this to ensure he can see where the products might fit in-store and has aligned new craft brands with his existing range, which resulted in a 7% sales uplift.
