The Retail Industry Awards is the only event where the whole industry get together to recognise and reward both the smallest independent retailers alongside the largest supermarket groups. Celebrating over 20 years of excellence, this glitzy awards evening to be be held at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London, rewards excellence and outstanding achievements across a variety of different categories.

The following Today’s Group retailers have been shortlisted in the below categories:

  • Store Manager of the Year – Sandeep Jadhav, Day-Today, Cathkin, Glasgow
  • Drinks Retailer of the Year – Today’s Express, Fulham, London
  • Independent Retailer of the Year (Up to 1,000sq ft) – Today’s Express, Fulham, London
  • Independent Retailer of the Year (Up to 1,000sq ft) – Today’s Local, Marshchapel Stores, Lincolnshire

Today’s Group has partnered with bigDL, a location based multi-retail consumer app, to promote Today’s deals to thousands of customers through their mobile phones. As well as featuring an extensive range of deals updated on a daily basis, customers can locate their nearest convenience store and view the latest promotional leaflet featuring store offers, all via the app. Users can also win prizes on a daily basis, which include free giveaways, entry into prize draws and epoints to spend on over 2 million products online.

In Spring 2016 Today’s Group rolled out beacons and electronic coupon (eCoupon) readers across its Symbol estate. This enabled notifications to be sent to customers smartphones when they are in close proximity to a Today’s store, making them aware of special offers and encouraging them to visit the store. The reader gives the retailer the capability to accept eCoupons, available exclusively to customers on the bigDL app.
