VME's customer of over 16 years, Scotmid Co-op, has been crowned the UK's best convenience store at the 2015 Convenience Retail Awards ceremony.
The store also won the best multiple store award, which was a fantastic result for everyone at Scotmid.
Congratulations from all at VME, especially myself, because before I joined VME I worked for Scotmid in their IT department.
In fact, I can still remember the first installation of epos in this store's predecessor (just along the road from this one), and I'll never forget the time after delivering the kit I had to reverse Scotmid's transit van out of the little side alley beside the store - with no back windows and no-one to help me reverse onto a busy road, it was a real challenge!
You can't drive into the alley anymore
Now its been converted into flats and you can't drive down the alley anymore. I feel old.
Despite that I have fond memories of that store so I'm chuffed to bits they've won both of these awards.
