Ultra Refrigeration Ltd is proud to be associated with Knight’s Budgens of Hassocks, recently crowned Convenience Retailer of the Year 2012 at the Convenience Retail Awards organised by top trade magazines Convenience Store and The Grocer.
In addition to the overall award, Knight’s Budgens also picked up the title of Best Large Store.
David insists on a partnership approach with local suppliers, ensuring everyone gets a fair deal. He has also made the environment a priority, installing a refrigeration system, which reduced his carbon footprint by 115 tonnes. The awards programme included a written entry and a judging visit to the store. A judging panel then decided on the winners.
David Rees, editor of Convenience Store magazine, said: “Knight’s Budgens of Hassocks represents everything that is great about the local retailing sector.”
“David & Lynette Knight, and the team at the store, have built a local enterprise that everyone involved can truly be proud of.”
