WELL-KNOWN Pietermaritzburg business Super­save won the prestigious title of International Retailer of the Year (South Africa) at the 2019 IGA International Retailers of the Year Awards.

The retailer, who is a member of the Unitrade Management Services (UMS), received the award at a glittering event held in San Diego, California, on February 21 and February 22.

Another Durban business — Take ‘n Pay Food Town Hyper in Chatsworth — also received the award.

The awards acknowledge retail excellence based on a selection of globally recognised criteria; including outstanding housekeeping, first-rate service levels, high standards of service departments, consistent pricing and — very importantly — community involvement.

Co-owners Abu Khatib and Suhail Bayat of Supersave Food Town Hyper have built their family-owned businesses to become first-rate community-based stores serving the needs of their unique communities.

The criteria against which the stores are judged also consider how the store owner ensures that their store stands out from the competition, drives departmental sales, keeps shoppers coming back and solves specific problems they would face in their unique market.
