Two Dundee businesses triumphed in Scotland’s independent retail awards.

Genio Tech, an IT and mobile phone repair centre on the Hilltown, took home the Technology Retailer of the Year prize at the glamorous event in Glasgow.

Meanwhile Strachan’s Tyres claimed the award for Auto Garage of the Year.

Creator and owner of the garage, Sean Strachan, said he was delighted with the result.
