Scottish Local Retailer, one of Scotland’s newest trade titles has won Business Magazine of the Year in the PPA Scotland Awards, just seven months after its launch.

SLR is published by Glasgow-based contract publishing firm 55 North on behalf of William Reed Publishing, publisher of The Grocer.

Editor of SLR Antony Begley said: "Considering the calibre of many business titles in Scotland - including the other shortlisted titles Scottish Business Insider and Prospect - this is an exceptional achievement."
