The judging for the 2021 ShelfLife National C-Store Awards has been completed, the trophies have been ordered and Marty Whelan has had his tuxedo pressed!

I apologise for spoiling the plans of all those who had planned to attend as I am formally announcing a postponement of next week’s event.

As you know, the current upward trend in Covid-19 hospitalisations has led to uncertainty about how the country will adjust in terms of public health issues in the run up to Christmas and the new year and the last thing that we want is another lock-down. The team at  ShelfLife has been paying close attention to these developments, and consulting with key sponsors, participants and supporters of the awards program.

Although we have all been looking forward to a great night out, the safe and right thing to do is to run the event at a later date when the Covid-19 outbreak is less prevalent.

We know how hard everybody has worked on this year’s awards programme, especially the retailers on the shortlist, our judging panel  and the team at ShelfLife and I am very sorry to spoil the fun at this short notice.

There will be a time when we can run the awards event without concern and we will announce a new date as soon as practicable.

Thanks again for all your support.

C-Store Award is a major accolade for any retail business, big or small.

A C-Store Award is one of the most coveted honours in the convenience store business and it is the only independently-judged awards programme for the c-store sector.

The ShelfLife National C-Store Awards celebrate success in one of the country’s most vibrant sectors, at an annual prize giving and gala dinner which is the social event in the FMCG business calendar. The event brings together some of the most dynamic companies for a night of celebration. After a longer break then expected and a challenging year for the industry it promises to be a memorable evening, with a gala dinner and prizegiving ceremony celebrating the industry’s finest stores and people in a diverse range of categories.

The ShelfLife C-Store Awards are the only comprehensive and independently judged business accolades for the C-Store sector, and as ever, we here at ShelfLife are proud to honour the excellent achievements of those in the trade for another year.

The 20th annual ShelfLife National C-Store Awards in association with Cuisine De France & The National Lottery. After a record number of entries this year, the judges can now reveal the shortlisted stores in each category.
