Midlands: up to 4mlpa

Spar Bilsby, Alford Lincolnshire

Awards host Myleene Klass, and Ramsay MacDonald, Gulf retail director (far left), present Tom Dant with the award for Best Site in the Midlands (up to 4mlpa).

Spar Bilsby is located in a rural village with around 150 houses. Earlier this year the 46-year old store underwent a much-needed refurbishment after a long period of consideration. The aim was to create a store that uses the latest convenience trends, such as lots of extra chillers to enable mission-based shopping, meals for tonight, as well as featuring local products such as fresh meats.
