Congratulations to Raj Aggarwal, our Retailer of the Month
Raj Aggarwal has played an active role in the retailing industry for over 38 years, having built up his Spar store in Sheffield which is the heart of the community in Hackenthorpe. Raj is always looking forward to see how new products, new technologies and new suppliers can benefit his customers. His passion for the industry also saw him join the Independent Board of the ACS in 2010.
Raj had these top tips for success:
- “It’s never too late to learn something new! I love to learn about what’s going on in the market place and this drives my passion for the industry. Your Perfect Store provides useful insights into how retailers can make the most of key confectionery occasions, as well as how to get involved in the latest competitions. I also keep an eye out on Twitter for the top tips and for new product launches – it’s so important to stay ahead of the game.”
- “I live by the old saying ‘Sharing is Caring’ – I think it’s really important to network with colleagues and share both the tried and tested methods, as well as new, innovative ideas that can take my customer offering to the next level.”
- “Looking after your staff is also a priority for us. By creating a good working environment, staff are more likely to stay on and this makes it easier to create a rapport with the local community too. We have a number of staff who have worked for us for more than 10 years, on account of how we care for them.”
