The shortlist for the SLR Awards 2022 has been unveiled after the successful completion of the first phase of judging.

This is a very special year for us, given that 2022 marks the 20th anniversary of the SLR Awards so it was enormously encouraging to see such a high standard of entries.

With the paper judging phase now complete, the judges will now begin the on-the-road judging, visiting every store on the shortlist over the next month.

“Once again, local retailing has proven how vital it is to communities all across Scotland – and I can’t wait to hit the road and start seeing all the shortlisted stores in person,” said Begley. “Good luck to every store on the shortlist.”

Our winners will be unveiled on 7 September at a glittering ceremony in the Radisson Blu Hotel, Glasgow.
