Swan glides into Scottish Grocer Awards 2017

Attendees at the Scottish Grocer Awards 2017 were treated to a very special George Michael tribute performance courtesy of Swan filters, the bestselling RYO accessories brand.


Held on Thursday 9th March at the Glasgow Hilton, the Awards recognise and reward the performance of local retailers across Scotland, celebrating the very best in convenience retailing.


As the sponsor of the Tobacco Accessories Retailer of the Year category, Swan filters (Republic Technologies UK Ltd) pulled out all the stops to treat visitors to a memorable evening, with MTJA working with Swan to maximise the sponsorship, and the Family Shopper, Motherwell store scooping the top award for the category.

‘Swan model’, Sam Wooley, was in attendance, decked out in a dress made entirely out of Swan packets, with a highlight of the evening being a very special Swan sponsored performance from professional George Michael impersonator, Rob Lamberti, bringing the Awards to a close.


Swan also supported the event with branded bottle openers and selfie sticks on each table for guests to enjoy.


We’d like to offer our congratulations to Family Shopper, Motherwell, this year’s Tobacco Accessories Retailer of the Year!


A fantastic night was had by all, and we can’t wait to see the write-up of the event in the April issue of Scottish Grocer magazine!
