Condron’s SuperValu, Clane has scooped the prestigious ‘Best Value for Money’ award at the annual Checkout ‘Best in Fresh’ awards. Condron’s award is another acknowledgement of SuperValu’s ongoing commitment to delivering an unrivalled fresh food range at great value prices while continuing to support Irish suppliers.
The annual awards, hosted by Checkout magazine, recognise retailers for their outstanding contribution to fresh food retailing across the entire shopping experience. Some of Ireland’s most innovative multiples, independent stores, forecourts, deli’s and specialist outlets competed for the awards.
Presenting the award, the judges said “Condron’s SuperValu has one of the best bakery sections in the country, and the value for money here is echoed right throughout the store – a huge array of well-priced meat, fish, fruit and veg. Clear pricing, clear quality – it ticks all the boxes.”
Commenting on the award, Alan Condron, Condron’s SuperValu said “This award is a real endorsement of the good value we offer across the entire store. We believe in value and strive towards giving our customers a great value offering through everyday low prices, consistent promotional offers and a range of own brand consisting of over 2,000 products across every category. In addition, we believe in delivering good value quality fresh food that shoppers can really trust. The quality of local food is second to none and this award is a true testament of our unwavering commitment to locally sourced produce.
“We buy Irish whenever possible, enabling us to support local farmers and local producers”, continued Condron, “As with all SuperValu stores, we offer fully qualified butchers, fishmongers, bakers and fresh food experts in our store to help our consumers to make the right choice to match their budget and tastes.”
Stephen Wynne-Jones, Editor of Checkout Magazine congratulated SuperValu saying “The culture of quality and attention to detail that SuperValu fosters in its stores is not just the finest in Ireland, but arguably exceeds that of most of Europe. In addition, the entrepreneurial spirit of its independent store owners is indicative of the efforts made by the group to achieve optimum standards, particularly when it comes to fresh.”
SuperValu serves over 2,000,000 customers every week and has 197 stores nationwide. 75% of everything on SuperValu’s shelves is sourced or produced in Ireland, contributing over €1.6 billion to the Irish economy and helping to sustain almost 30,000 Irish jobs in the farm, food and retail sector.
