About the competition
Deposit Store of the Year is the competition that rewards stores that work a little extra committed with their deposit stations - and who thereby create a nice experience for their customers. It can be an out-of-the-ordinary treatment, a super-hip interior or the possibility to deposit around the clock. It is possible to work involved with one's deposit station in a variety of ways, which is why we always set the winning categories after we have read the justifications.
The prize pool is SEK 20,000 for the store to donate to any charity with a 90 account.
This year's competition ended on November 6.
