Independent Inverurie retailer, Booth Scotland has won a prestigious award for quality and service at an awards ceremony in London.
Booth Scotland were awarded the coveted ERT Award for the Best Independent Consumer Electronics Retailer – Large at the 2019 ERT Awards presentation in London’s Covent Garden.
Taking place in the Grand Connaught Rooms, entrants were subject to assessment from a panel of industry experts who judged the retailer categories.
Booth Scotland’s Inverurie store offers the newest cutting-edge consumer electronics, with large modern display areas offering the customer a hands-on environment to test and try products.
Now in its twelfth year, the ERT Awards bring together retailers and suppliers to recognise excellence across the electrical retail industry and in 2017, Booth Scotland won the Domestic Appliance Retailer of the Year.
The event combines an electrical retail conference with an awards ceremony to recognise industry leaders within their field.
Winning an ERT Award recognises the knowledge of their experienced staff and speaks for the standard of service they provide.
Director of Booth Scotland, Trevor Booth was delighted to be presented the award and said: “Booth Scotland continue to strive to deliver high quality products and services within the north-east of Scotland.
“We are delighted to be recognised for this hard work, it means a lot to our team who continuously put in the hours and effort to provide for our customers.
“We look forward to seeing how we can continue to develop and push the standards of consumer electronics within the retail industry.”
Speaking to the Advertiser, Trevor said that: “It was a pleasant surprise to win and we were up against some fantastic businesses from across England and Ireland”.
Asthe only Scottish candidate at this year's awards, Trevor said: “We did receive quite a big cheer from everybody in the room”.
Trevor was not allowed to give a speech at the award ceremony, but added: “If I had, I was going to say, we're rubbish at football, we're not that good at rugby, but we're pretty good at retailing.”
General manager of Booth Scotland, Allan Will was also in attendance to be presented with the award and said: “It’s great to see the north-east of Scotland considered and recognised for an award judged and presented in the UK’s capital city.
“This will be a great moral boost for the team in Inverurie, who equally deserve recognition for this award.”
