Ireland’s Top50 stores

Wednesday 6th October 2010 –  Retail Excellence Ireland have today announced the Top50 stores in Ireland as part of the Retail Excellence Ireland Awards in association with the Sunday Independent to be held at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Galway in November. The awards will be attended by over 500 representatives of the Irish retail industry and hosted by Miriam O’Callaghan.

Established by industry group, Retail Excellence Ireland (REI), the awards recognise and reward the highest standards of excellence across the entire retail industry – not just one particular sector.

Chief Executive of Retail Excellence Ireland, David Fitzsimons, said: “This year the standard of stores did not fail to impress with a very high calibre turnout of applicants.  In spite of the challenging trading conditions this year, we still received more than 400 entries from across the country, which proves how important these awards are to store owners and their employees. To achieve a Top50 award these stores have proven that they are vigorously investing in their businesses and their people and remain true to what is best about Irish retail” he said.

The rigorous selection process involves a mystery customer visiting each entered store to complete a full visit report, which is initially narrowed down to a ‘Top 100’ list.  A fully trained retail assessor then conducts a thorough store assessment, which added to photographic evidence results in the selection of the Top50 stores in Ireland.
