EVANS Head supermarket SPAR has done it again, winning awards at the SPAR Australia annual Gala Awards Dinner.

SPAR Evans Head was named as the winner of the 2014 Dairy/Freezer Department of the Year Award and the 2014 Store Investment Excellence Award.

Winner of the 2013 SPAR Store of the Year Award, 2013 Produce Department of the Year and 2013 Brand Ambassador of the Year Awards, SPAR Evans Head store owners Shane and Carol Todd, along with their daughter Camille and her husband Clinton, could have sat back and enjoyed their success, but instead they got straight back to work, creating plans to further improve their store.

The Store Investment Excellence Award recognises a store which has gone the extra mile to improve through refurbishment, hard work, new development, new equipment, or other aspects which improves the perception of the store in the local community. It is also a store which has demonstrated strong commitment to the brand.

Early this year, work was undertaken to change a run of low-profile shelving into a full-height aisle and a new meat case.

This saw the addition of six bays of groceries, a new 5m meat case, an island drink fridge, four additional freezer doors and an additional 2.5m of space made available for dairy.

"Being long-time Evans Head locals, the Todds know what type of offer is needed in Evans Head and they continue to invest heavily to ensure the store is of an exceptional standard for their customers," SPAR Australia said. "Their clear focus on customer service and responsiveness to customers' needs and wishes definitely sets them apart from their competition."
