Local retailers from across Scotland were honoured at the Scottish Grocer Awards 2019.

Scotmid Clarkston took home the Bakery Retailer of the Year (Managed) Award; Spar Thornliebank won the Highly Commended title for Best Soft Drink Outlet of the Year and Shawlands News scooped Tobacco Retailer of the Year Award.

Scottish Grocer editor Matthew Lynas said: “The Scottish Grocer Awards is a celebration of the absolute best in convenience retail.

“More than just shops, Scotland’s independent convenience stores often serve as pillars of their community, supporting local causes and offering a personal service that you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else.

“Convenience stores may operate in a challenging marketplace, but this year’s Scottish Grocer Awards programme has proven yet again that our nation is blessed with some of the most ingenious and hard-working retailers around.”
