Forecourt security organisation BOSS (British Oil Security Syndicate) and the Scottish Grocers’ Federation (SGF) have teamed up to offer forecourt retailers a special SGF membership deal.

Forecourt retailers can join the SGF now and receive membership for the rest of 2016 for free, and then pay a special partnership rate of £25 for 2017 next January.

Kevin Eastwood, executive director at BOSS, said the two organisations had been involved in a number of security initiatives and had seen the benefits of working together.

SGF chief executive Pete Cheema said 11% of convenience stores in Scotland were on forecourts and the membership deal was an opportunity for forecourt retailers to see the benefits of joining the SGF.

He said the SGF provided the c-store sector with a strong voice in the Scottish Parliament and SGF events gave members the opportunity to network with other retailers and suppliers. The SGF can also provide advice on issues such as licensing, pensions, HR issues and employment law.
