Proudfoot’s shortlisted for Independent Retail Chain of the Year at the Grocer Gold Awards

Scarborough retailer The Proudfoot Group have been shortlisted for a prestigious award at this year’s Grocer Gold Awards, which recognise the outstanding achievements and examples of retailing excellence of food and drink retailers over the last year.

Last Friday it was announced that the family-owned supermarket chain, which comprises four food stores and one non-food store in the Scarborough area, have been shortlisted for the acclaimed ‘Independent Retail Chain of the Year’ award.

The achievement continues an already successful year for the group, who earlier this month received the award for ‘Outstanding Contribution to the Local Community’ at Nisa’s annual awards evening and gala dinner.

The Grocer Gold Awards ceremony will take place on the 13th June at Guildhall, London where the Proudfoot Group will find out whether they have won the esteemed title.

Valerie Aston, director at the Proudfoot Group, commented: “We are absolutely delighted to be shortlisted. The Grocer Gold Awards are prestigious within the industry, so it’s wonderful to be recognised and it is a testament to all the hard work of our employees. We couldn’t be more thrilled. We look forward to the ceremony with everything crossed.”
