Retail Industry Awards: Branches delighted and proud

Congratulations to eight branches who have been shortlisted for Post Office Retailer of the Year in the Retail Industry Awards 2018. The awards are dubbed The "Oscars" of the grocery industry and recognise excellence in small independent retailers and those affiliated to symbol groups alongside the largest supermarket chains.

The Post Office Retailer of the Year category recognises retailers whose store includes a Post Office outlet for the way in which they leverage the strengths of both elements to make a success of the overall business.

The winners in each category will be revealed at the awards ceremony at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel on 27 September.
