The MTJA team was delighted to play a role in this year’s Retail Industry Awards. The event took place last week (28th September) at the stunning Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane with MTJA clients helping to create a memorable evening for all.
The Retail Industry Awards celebrates all things retail; rewarding excellence and achievement across a broad range of categories. It’s one of the only events where the whole industry gets together to celebrate smaller independent retailers, as well as the larger supermarket groups.
MTJA clients sponsored two awards this year. Republic Technologies (Swan filters, the bestselling RYO accessories brand) supported Store Manager of the Year and Grace Foods UK put their name to Independent World Foods Retailer of the Year.
Big congratulations were in order for all the winners – Mark Gore of Spar Rocket Supermarket, Bolton scooped Store Manager of the Year and Rootes Grocery Store (Costcutter, University of Warwick) picked up Independent World Foods Retailer of the Year.
Grace sampled its new look plantain chips at the drinks reception with tropical hostesses from Brazilian Fantasy alongside a trio of talented steel drum players from Endurance Steel Orchestra – both of which were very well received by the crowds!
Swan arranged a fantastic drinks trike offering signature cocktails and Greg Williamson was wowed guests at the dinner table with his magic. The night concluded with an exceptional performance to get everyone dancing, from Swan’s favourite tribute, George Michael Relived – Rob Lamberti.
