We are now approaching the home straight for the SLR Awards 2021, with only five days to go before the big reveal.
Our second annual Virtual Festival of Excellence will celebrate not only the worthy winners on the evening but also the entire sector which has gone to heroic lengths over the last 18 months or to so keep Scotland functioning.
Communities across Scotland have never been more reliant on their local store than they have been during the pandemic. It was an enormous challenge for the entire industry – retailers, wholesalers, symbol groups and suppliers alike – but collectively we more than rose to the challenge. In fact, it’s widely recognised that the independent retailing sector was second only to the NHS in providing the vital services that everyone in Scotland relied upon during the toughest time in our collective living memory.
So, join us on Wednesday 27 October at 6pm to celebrate our winners and to celebrate the entire sector. It’s never been more vital to recognise and reward the efforts of retailers across Scotland.
We look forward to seeing you on the night – and don’t forget to grab a glass for the traditional SLR Awards toast to Scotland’s local retailers!
