Four Waterford-based retailers have made the top 30 stores in Ireland list, as compiled by Retail Excellence.
House of Waterford Crystal, Mulligan’s Pharmacy and Tony Roche Menswear in the city and Applegreen, Tramore, have been selected to go through to the finals of the Store of the Year competition.
The Retail Excellence Annual Awards aim to encourage the highest standards in the Irish Retail Industry.
CEO of the organisation David Fitzsimons said Waterford was punching above its weight with some really innovative stores:
“Mulligans pharmacy on the Dunmore Road is the only pharmacy in Ireland with a drive through which is incredibly innovative. And fair play to Elaine Roche of Tony Roche Menswear.. you can get a coffee and get your hair cut, it’s sensational.”
The top 30 have been whittled down from an initial 600. The National Store of the Year will be announced at a banquet in Killarney in November.
