O’Leary’s Centra, Tower, Co. Cork is celebrating their Centra Neighbourhood Store of the Year 2015 and Overall Store of the Year 2015 awards. The award was presented to Paddy O’Leary, Store Owner and Lisa O’ Leary, Store Manager by Martin Kelleher, MRPI MD and Ian Allen, Centra Sales Director.

Lee’s Centra in Charleville, Co. Cork scooped Centra’s ‘High Convenience Store of the Year Award 2015’ and Kelly’s Centra in Mountain-Top, Co. Donegal took home the ‘Convenience Store of the Year Award 2015’, all having fought off stiff competition from Centra retailers around the country.

The awards were presented by Martin Kelleher, Ian Allen, and Robert Finnegan, Three CEO. Three are the sponsors of the Awards.

The Centra ‘Store of the Year’ Awards are bestowed upon the stores which give a true reflection of excellence across every retail aspect.

All 463 Centra stores throughout the Republic of Ireland are audited by an independent retail consultant, Joe Comerford, for the award. The audit focuses on value, fresh food, quality, product range, hygiene, customer service and local community involvement.

Commenting on the awards, competition judge, Joe Comerford said “These finalists offer an exceptional service from the moment you step inside their door. They tick all the boxes – from a wide product selection with an excellent fresh food offering, to great value products with first rate customer service. Local community involvement is also of paramount importance to these stores.”

Commenting on the awards Robert Finnegan, CEO at Three, said “These awards are hugely important to the retail sector and we’re delighted to play a part in them. Three is proud to continue the sponsorship of the overall Store of the Year award and we look forward to bringing the partnership with Centra from strength to strength.”
