The MICAM Retail Awards went this time to an Italian buyer, Silvano Brutti, and to a Belgian one, Willy Van Look. Butti and his cousins run a chain of 15 stores named after their family, located for the most part in the regions of Lombardy and Piedmont. Van Look runs together with his family the well-known and elegant 1,000-sqm. store that carries in Zandhoven near Antwerp, Belgium. The 60-year-old operation, where 80 percent of the products are Italian, already got a European retail award at the GDS fair in Düsseldorf in 1999.
