Żabka again with the Retailer of the Year title
Żabka was awarded the title of Retailer of the Year 2021 in the category of Small-format Stores. The award was presented during this year’s European Circular Retail Congress, on April 6 at the Hilton Double Tree Hotel in Warsaw. The awards given thanks to the votes of companies cooperating with chains – their suppliers, are of particular importance to Żabka – as they are an expression of trust and recognition for satisfactory cooperation. For the awarded company, receiving such a distinction is always a great honor.
A small great store
Żabka has been awarded again the winner of the prestigious “Retailer of the Year – Selected by suppliers” competition for 2021. This is another prize in the Small-format Stores category awarded to the chain. The winners of this year’s edition were announced on April 6 in Warsaw. The award was received on behalf of Żabka by Adam Manikowski, Executive Vice-President, Managing Director of Żabka Polska.
The Retailer of the Year is a unique prize because it is awarded by suppliers. It is proof that suppliers consider the chain they have awarded to be a reliable partner and appreciate this cooperation. Awarding this prize to one chain many times is proof that it is worth cooperating with Żabka and it is the best possible recommendation for the chain from FMCG producers.
Żabka is a reliable partner
Żabka is the fastest growing modern convenience chain in Poland, currently with nearly 8200 stores across the country. Last year it opened 1100 new stores and has ambitions to make this year even better in terms of development. This would not have been possible without the chain’s employees, franchisees, and suppliers, many of whom have been working with the chain for many years, valuing it as a stable, reliable partner that has proven its value for years – even in difficult pandemic times.
Retailer of the Year
The “Retailer of the Year – Chosen by suppliers” award is the only distinction in the Polish market awarded to retail and wholesale chains by their suppliers.
