Eugene Dalton of Corrib Oil SPAR Express Carrick-on-Shannon said: “We are delighted to receive this award 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.”


Colin Donnelly, SPAR National Sales Director, BWG Foods (owners and operators of the SPAR and SPAR Express brands in Ireland) added: “SPAR retailers strive for excellence in every aspect of their service to their shoppers and the local communities in which they are embedded.
