Whether you've expanded your business, added new services, or boosted your involvement in the local community, Convenience Store wants to hear from you - and you could be in with a chance of winning a whopping £1,200.
Convenience Store has joined forces with the UK's largest independent baker, Warburtons, to reward retailers who are serving their community in the best possible way.
There are three categories in the Growing with Warburtons competition - neighbourhood, rural and town. The judges from C-Store and Warburtons will compile a shortlist of the best, and those stores will be visited by mystery shoppers to determine the victors. The winner of each category will win £200 and be profiled in this magazine. From these three retailers, an overall winner will scoop a further £1,000.
Warburtons' executive director Brett Warburton says: "Convenience retailing is an increasingly competitive marketplace, but that hasn't stopped many independent retailers from operating some truly impressive stores. We want to reward those retailers who are thriving and expanding their business and their role in the local community.
"If you can demonstrate growth
in your business, we want to hear from you. It could be worth your while - there's a £1,200 prize up for grabs for the overall winner."
