    Williams Family of Premier Broadway in Edinburgh has been announced as the winner of the 2023 Raj Aggarwal Trophy.

    The trophy is awarded to retailers who have demonstrated an exceptional commitment to community retailing over the last year, supporting their colleagues, customers and fellow retailers.

    The Williams Family has been demonstrating exceptional community retailing in Oxgangs, Edinburgh for over 40 years. Dennis, Linda and Sophie work tirelessly to support their customers and colleagues, are embedded within local schools, and go above and beyond to make their store a community hub.

    ACS chief executive James Lowman said: “Congratulations to the Williams Family who are deserved winners of this award, which highlights the very best of community retailing. The competition was extremely close – all three of the finalists are doing incredible work locally and it was great to hear so many examples of community activity that make a real difference.”

    The 2023 finalists were Williams Family of Broadway Premier, Keshwara & Sons of SPAR Priory Road and Trudy Davies, Woosnam & Davies News.

    The three finalists were invited to ACS’ Heart of the Community conference, where they took part in a panel session on the day discussing the range and importance of their community activity over the last year.

    The winner was voted on by retailers and suppliers in attendance and announced today by Business and Trade Minister Kevin Hollinrake MP at an exclusive reception on the House of Commons Terrace.

    The entries were judged by Sunita Aggarwal, Raj’s wife and owner of SPAR Wigston, Jonathan James, Managing Director of James Convenience Retail, and Avtar Sidhu, owner of Budgens Kenilworth.
