SPAR Corrib Oil Carrick-on-Shannon is among a small group of retailers from around the country who have been honoured at the fourth annual Top of the Tree Retail Awards.

The awards programme recognises best practice and outstanding retail practice in several store departments, including customer care, off-licence, butchery, fruit and veg and the delicatessen section.

SPAR Corrib Oil Carrick-on-Shannon was awarded a Top of the Tree accolade for their Wine department.

Store manager Noel Scally said: “We are delighted to receive this accolade which is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff. Top of the Tree is not only a mark of pride for our store and staff, but  more importantly it lets our customers know that we are leaders in the field. This accolade is a point of differentiation in what is a very competitive marketplace and we’re honoured to receive the recognition.”
