Sweet taste of success

There’s plenty of competition for Confectionery Retailer of the Year. All the more impressive then that the multiple winner Harris Aslam took the honours in a field as strong as ever at the SLR Rewards.


It was a fantastic SLR Rewards for Harris Aslam of Nisa Greens of Markinch. Not only did he win the overall Scottish Local Retailer of the Year title and a trip to the NACS Show in Atlanta, he also picked up three individual category awards too.

One of those was the coveted Confectionery Retailer of the Year category and category sponsors Wrigley provided Harris with a fantastic Reward of an exclusive Virgin Experience Day, worth £500.

Harris hasn’t decided yet what he’s going to do with the voucher but there’s an array of once-in-a-lifetime activities he can choose from. He could have a go at parachuting or bungee jumping, but with Harris’s well known love of speed and fast cars, he may well be more tempted with a high-octane race day or a flight experience.

“I haven’t decided what I’m going to go for yet because there are so many amazing experiences available, but I’m sure whatever I choose it will be a whole lot of fun,” Harris told SLR.

“I was blown away on the night to pick up the Scottish Local Retailer of the Year award and to also win three category awards was more than I could ever have dreamed of. Even if you don’t win, I think that the actual process of entering awards is a really positive thing to do because it forces you to see your business with fresh eyes.”
