Mackenzie & Cruickshank celebrates local award

Moray Chamber of Commerce voted Mackenzie & Cruickshank best SME business 2022. “This is a lovely award to get as it is voted on by our fellow businesses,” says Peter Wilson.

Writing on Facebook he said, “What an honour and super proud when voted for by other local business leaders. Would not happen without all the professional, hard working and enthusiasm of “team” M&C.”

He believes the award has recognised how the company responded to Covid.  “We worked hard and adapted quickly.”  A major change brought about by covid was the restaurant changing to full table service.  He said, “The customers prefer it and we’ll never go back.”

Peter Wilson bought a hardware store named Mackenzie and Cruickshank in Forres.  Then 20 years ago a call centre became available, which he bought and converted into a garden centre.

The company is a member of the Choice Marketing group of independent garden centres.  Turnover has reached £3m.  Peter’s son has now joined the business.
