For almost 20 years the SLR Awards have been recognising and rewarding excellence in the Scottish local retailing sector.
Following a truly remarkable year, it’s more important than ever that we celebrate the fantastic work of local retailers across Scotland. Local retailers played a fundamental role at the heart of communities the length and breadth of the country and their heroic efforts deserve to be celebrated.
The safety of our colleagues in this industry is of course paramount, which is why we will once again be hosting the SLR Awards virtually: a true Virtual Festival of Excellence.
This year however, subject to Scottish Government restrictions, we will host a small scale live event for winners in November where we can come together safely and securely to toast both the winners of the SLR Awards 2021 and indeed the entire local retailing sector.
There’s no question that 2020 was a year full of challenges unlike any we have ever seen before, but no sector rose to those challenges quite to emphatically as the local retailing sector.
The SLR Awards 2021 will be our forum to pay homage to an incredible industry sector that shone brightest in the toughest of times.
