ABOUT

The SLR Rewards are back again with another set
of amazing Rewards for the 2018 winners.

SLR is proud to launch the 2018 SLR Rewards, the most Rewarding event in local retailing!  Created in 2003 to
recognise and reward innovation and excellence in Scottish convenience retailing, the Rewards are now unique in the UK retailing calendar.

Every category winner picks up a high value Reward that will help them improve their business and improve themselves as retailers,
leaders and entrepreneurs. Some Rewards will be valuable, some will be money-can’t-buy. All will help retailers make more of their business.

At last year’s event we sent winning retailers to far flung places like Amsterdam & Chicago. Other winners received cool tech prizes like an
Amazon Echo or an Apple Watch, while some were rewarded with overnight stays and fine dining experiences.

We’re aiming to up the ante again in 2018 with another array of fantastic Rewards.
One thing is for sure though: the top prize once again this year will be a trip to attend the NACS conference stateside.

This year’s awards ceremony will take place on Wednesday 20 June at the Radisson Blu hotel in Glasgow.

SHORTLIST

The shortlist for this year’s SLR Rewards has been unveiled following the successful completion of the first phase of judging by an experienced judging panel.

The SLR Rewards recognise and reward excellence and hard work across the Scottish local retailing industry. Once again, the unique SLR Rewards will be proving every category winner with a fantastic Reward while the overall Scottish Local Retailer will jet off to Las Vegas later this year to attend the NACS Conference 2018!
