SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend


A local family owned supermarket chain is celebrating after two of its properties were named in the Top 100 independent shops.
The Harry Tuffins supermarket in Churchstoke has retained its position in the charts for the second year running and is joined by its sister supermarket in Knighton as judged by the Independent Achievers Academy.
Mark Williams, General Manager at Harry Tuffins, said: “We’re absolutely delighted and honoured to be listed in the top 100 independent shops in the country. This achievement is testament to the hard work of our staff and the continued loyalty and feedback from our customers on the service that they expect Harry Tuffins to provide within the community”.
Reaching over 50,000 independents every year, the IAA is a business development initiative that supports, celebrates and promotes local news and convenience stores. Every year, Retailers from across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales undergo rigorous assessment, including a mystery shopper visit, for the chance to be listed as a top 100 store.
As a top 100 retailer, Harry Tuffins is now eligible to win one of the 12 main category awards which will be presented at the IAA gala dinner in London on November 18.
 Shops are assessed against the 12 Academy best practice principles and store visits were conducted throughout August.
