Battistelli’s Your Independent Grocer in Lively was recently honoured for excellence by a grocery industry association.
Established in 1962, the Canadian Federation of Independent Grocers (CFIG) awards program recognizes the success of outstanding independent retailers.
Independent grocers from across Canada compete for the title awarded annually in each of the specialty, large, medium and small surface categories.
Stores are evaluated for retail excellence and rated on customer service, staff, department management, store layout, merchandising, creativity, cleanliness, and community involvement.
Owner Brent Battistelli and the store team at Battistelli’s Your Independent Grocer was presented with the Gold Award in the Medium Surface Category.
