Dennis and Linda Williams of Broadway Convenience Store in Oxgangs, Edinburgh, were chosen as the Federation of Wholesale Distributors' My Shop Is Your Shop Gold Medal Retailers of 2007 at a gala dinner at London's Café Royal.
The award recognises the efforts made by the couple and their staff in organising community events centred around their store during National Independents' Week in June.
MSYS chairman Alan Toft said: "Dennis and Linda are wonderful examples of top independent business people who run excellent shops and at the same time are fully involved in their community. They fully appreciate their inter-dependence with their local customers and they have set down very high standards of community retailing for our Gold Medal winners of the future."
