Retail Excellence award Kilkenny stores

Two Kilkenny stores are in the running for top award

Two Kilkenny stores have been named in the top 100 stores in Ireland!

The shops, one in the city centre and another in Ballyhale, rose to the top of more than 500 stores across the country who were entered in the awards this year.

Folkster on Patrick Street in Kilkenny and the Glanbia CountryLife store in Ballyhale are the stores to be honoured, highlighting the quality of Kilkenny shopping.

The awards will take place at a black tie event on Saturday, November 10, in the Malton Hotel in Killarney.

Retail Excellence, backed by AIB Merchant Services (AIBMS), will celebrate and pay tribute to the very best in the Irish Retail Industry – both in-store and online. The awards bring together the top talent in Irish retail and recognise the most innovative retailers across a variety of categories.

Lorraine Higgins, Chief Executive of Retail Excellence said “This year we were delighted to have received over 500 store entries from every retail sector for our national retail awards. The quality of customer care and excellence throughout these entries made selecting the Top100 stores an extremely difficult task”.

“Such high standards are particularly important given the difficult challenges facing retailers at present including the ongoing threat posed by Brexit, as well as domestic issues which we continue to work to resolve on behalf of our members.”
